I just tried selling to the distant market and there was no more demand once the demand tile was flipped. Fine, but then my turn ended when I still had another mill to flip with my own port. The rules state that when you take the sell cotton action, you can sell cotton from 'any number' of your face up mills. Why could I not flip my other cotton mill using my own port (they were connected)?
Would appreciate any help.

This behaviour is correct. Page 7 of the first-edition Brass rulebook states, under "Distant Markets": "If the marker hits the bottom space then you do not flip your cotton mill. Your Sell action ends immediately".
For this reason, if you can't be confident that a sale to the Distant Market will be successful but you have Port industry tiles you could sell to, it's often a good idea to use the Port industry tiles before going for the Distant Market. This slightly moves the balance of the game towards players who have adopted a "Ports strategy".
