Here's how it sort of worked in the UK.
A city has a cathedral. Or a royal charter. Or is a big town that feels
like calling itself a city.
A town has a weekly (or more frequent) market. Or used to have a market.
A village has one or more churches. Or used to, before they closed due to
worshippers. No cathedral, no market.
A hamlet doesn't even have a church, let alone a market or cathedral.
Yes, there are exceptions. :)
