    As an avid wordpress user, I can definitely vouch that wordpress isn't the way to go, and as I've briefly touched Joomla, I knew the potential that Joomla can bring to you.

    However, your requirements seem more tailored towards a custom-made php based website, instead of a turnkey solution such as Joomla and Wordpress.

    From my point of view you're looking to create an ecommerce site. For that purpose it would be better to try Magento. On the other hand you can do the same thing in WordPress, because it's currently the most liquid CMS in the web. Compared to Joomla you will have to take your time to do the same thing you require. Also WP has a very wide variety of compatible add-ons that always come in handy. Furthermore, Joomla's websites are stiff and not very appealing, at least to me. That doesn't mean you can achieve the same result, only difference is that it will take you more time than with WP.

    You can get a marketplace up and running on your site using various full-featured marketplace software. You can choose from a very quick and dead-simple marketplace SaaS solution.
