German term or phrase: Gewerbehöfe
These are areas where craftsmen and I suppose other businesspeople can display their wares (I think). Does anyone know a good English equivalent?

craftmen's emporium or craftmen's court
Explanation:
or craft emporium

sounds like a mall but I've seen some in small towns in Ontario and northern New York...

You can also say craftmen's court (a more faithful rendition of the German):

Business parks


Explanation:
I'm sure you can use this for Gewerbehöfe as it is mentioned in your second question, for which - unfortunately - I cannot come up with anything for the E in GE. The G certainly stands for Gewerbe again. Could there possibly be a hint further on in the context?
