    You can try VirtueMart, you need Joomla CMS to use VirtueMart, but it's free. You can check demo here.

    The problem in Joomla here is, there isn't a component that allows users from the front-end to use a shopping component to add their own inventory of goods at the back and then sell it at the front. And then when payment goes through, how would the money go to the user who posted that product? I don't know. I just can't find a particular component that can do that so far.

    For free and paid shopping cart systems try to have a research first of all and then decide which is better I have researched for my self and now I am working with pinnacle cart , as it comes with 14 days trial but it is paid system and for free systems as if you wished so try osCommerce but I think it may have some problems that paid one is better
    for more information you may search google for: pinnacle cart review yummy or osCommerce review

    joomla used to work with magento. its def worth looking into. Many high end ecommerce stores actually use drupal and magento combined for their online shop

    Wordpress combined with WooCommerce. Options are endless with countless extensions and plugins.

    I was looking at CS cart for something like this but they suck and never return messages.

    Check out OpenCart it's a really good eCommerce solution. Has tons of features and a lot of support behind it.
