Ruling on women selling their goods in the market

I have a wife who wants to go and buy and sell on Thursdays in a market where men and women come together. She is very modest and covers herself.
Please advise us.

Praise be to Allaah.

It is permissible for her to go to the market to buy and sell, if she needs to do that and if she covers all of her body in clothes that do not describe its shape, and she does not mix with men in any way that would give rise to suspicion. If she does not need to go and buy and sell, then it is better for her not to do so.
