The studied variables were physical continuity (form continuity and spatial integrity) and functional continuity (use continuity and activities transformability). Data were collected using interviews and field observation. The statistical sample was 350 market visitors who were interviewed for one week. Data were analyzed using content analysis through Depthmap software and a T-test in SPSS 24 software.
Findings: The highest and lowest attendance rate of people was observed in South Vakil and Ordo Bazar of the traditional market of Shiraz by 95% and 30%, respectively. The lowest continuity in shape was observed in paths Bazar Morgh and Ordo Bazar and the highest was observed in paths North Vakil and South Vakil, the highest spatial integration was observed in South Vakil and Shah Cheragh and the lowest was observed in paths 5 and 1, the highest mean compatibility values was observed in North Vakil and South Vakil, and its lowest level was observed in the Ordo Bazar. The highest rate of diversity was observed in the South Vakil and North Vakil and the lowest level was observed in the Ordo Bazar, respectively.
