For Humble Compound you also need Bronzeware or Lacquerware. Also Acupuncturist.

Bronze is across the river, smelt it there, make bronzeware and storage closer to market.

So you will need Grand Market Square with spaces for 6 shops, with one for Bronzeware.

What Serrataur said is correct, but let me add to it.

A common marketplace will not allow you to set a minimum food quality higher than 'appetizing', but (as you know) you need it at 'Tasty'. This can cause problems in evolution of your elite housing because the common market will pull food from the mill that is below 'tasty' quality - and thus not suitable for evolving your elite housing.

The best way to solve this problem is to place Grand Marketplace(s). A Grand Marketplace will allow you to set a minimum food quality at the 'Tasty' level, which will insure your elite housing gets what it needs.

Unless you convert all your common marketplaces to grand marketplaces, you may find the common ones suck the food out of your mills before the grand marketplaces can get the 'tasty' food from it. The way around this is to build your cities using only grand marketplaces, with all of them set to get a minimum food quality of 'tasty'.

Ok, your picture tells a thousand words. Look inside that Food Information box and you will see a line of text that says:

Minimum quality: Appetizing food

What I want you to notice is that the "Appetizing food" text on that line is inside a button. Click on that text/button and it will toggle through all the food quality levels. If you click one time, it will toggle from Appetizing to Tasty. You need to do this to change the minimum quality to be "Tasty food". After you do that, the food buyers will only pull food from your mill that is at the "tasty" level.

If you want to further speed up the replenishment of 'tasty' food in your grand market square here is another tip to use AFTER you set the minimum quality to 'Tasty'. Go ahead and delete the food shops from the market square, then immediately replace them. Because these new food shops are empty, they will immediately send buyers to the mill to get the 'tasty' food, if it is available.

lol, yup, three minutes later all conformed, off to next level.
Im sure I couldn't choose the Taste level before, guess because of common market and then should have waited a while for it to take and check the buttons again.

Thanks!
