Origin of bazaar

  • Italian bazarro and Urdu bāzār both from Persian bāzār wes-3 in Indo-European roots

    From American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language, 5th Edition

  • From Italian bazarra, from Persian بازار (bâzâr, “market”), from Middle Persian wʾčʾl (wāzār), from earlier wāčār (compare Old Armenian վաճառ (vačaṙ)), from Old Persian [script?] (vahā-čarana, “market-walkabout”), compound of Proto-Indo-European *wesā- (“to buy”) and *kʷéle/o (“to turn”). More at vend and wheel.
