Knorda Market is Chapter 11 of Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon.
You will find the first Ballisticians and your first enemy Manakete (that is not required to be defeated). You will also find another Arena that you can use to train your units and earn some extra gold. If you visit Anna, and talk to Jake (with Caeda), you can recruit him.

Try to keep weak units out of the range of the Ballistae. The damage is devastating but their accuracy is horrific, so it might not seem like a threat at first. Make sure to keep your fliers far away from Jake (including Caeda, she WILL be attacked including by Jake and with default unpromoted speed is not able to pass danger zone in single turn.), if you wish to recruit him. A General can be useful for safely taking the Ballistae out if you have one, although a unit with high Resistance (such as your healer) can be used to wear out the uses of the Ballista with Thunderbolt, as it deals magical damage. Alternatively you may choose to reclass Caeda to ground based class, making Arrowspate weapon much less dangerous to her or use the Warp staff if you still have it.
Pay a visit to the arena for some extra cash to buy more items if you are short on supplies. The extra levels will help your units survive Ballistae if they are weak. If you decide to go, visit the homes until you enter the one with Anna, After that, you can recruit Jake. Anna is in the house left of the river.
(You can level all your units to level 20 if you have the time then spend money on weapons at the Arena)
