The Man from the Bazaar is a character from The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. He is a large, bearded man who owns and operates the Bazaar. When Link is a child, the man can be found in his shop in Hyrule Castle Town. Following Ganondorf's attack on Hyrule Castle, however, he flees to Kakariko Village and makes the Boy in the Graveyard's vacant house atop the hill near the Death Mountain Trail the new Bazaar.
Although not much is known about the Bazaar owner, he is apparently good friends with the Keaton Mask Soldier at Kakariko Village. If Link shows the guard Princess Zelda's letter, he will open the gate leading to Death Mountain, and inform Link that in order to climb the slopes of the mountain, he should equip the proper shield. The shield he is talking about is the Hylian Shield, and if Link visits the Bazaar after speaking to the Keaton Mask Soldier, the Man from the Bazaar will give Link a discount on the item.
