Money market can be defined as the place of mechanism whereby funds are obtained. For short periods of time (from one to one year) and financial assets representing short term claim are exchanged.
As a section of the financial market, it is made up of financial organization and dealers. They as a group quicken the borrowing and lending of short-term money (bank credit and non bank credit) by bringing under one umbrella those institutions with surplus funds, which wish to lend on a short-term basis and those wishing to borrow.

However, this does not mean that money market activities cannot be carried out at a specified area or street in a more developed country a typical example is London.
