Th is research emphasizes on a crowd model that includes simp lified movement and unplanned purchasing models. This model has been developed based on intelligent agent concept, where each agent represents a buyer. Two trad itional markets are used for simulat ion in this research, namely Gedongkuning and Ngasem, in Yogyakarta, Indonesia. The simulat ion shows that some places are visited more frequently than others. Overall, the simulat ion result matches the situation found in the real world.
