Yes, this is exactly that ! I didn't know how it was called in English.
Thank you a lot for your fast answer ! I think I should change the tag name for "industrial=grain_elevator" according to the English Wikipedia page : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grain_elevator

these are commonly called Elevators in the US. i don't know what british
usage is.

note that there are also bin sites, which don't have the market/sales
aspect but are places where bins may be found, sometimes in large
number, for storage.

in the US, elevators may be straight up commercial, or may be coops.
don't know if that is worth capturing or not.
