labelClass: "labels",

Defined in CSS as 'label', not 'labels'.

labelContent: markers.place_name,

The passed variable to this function is place, not markers.

Did you define the parameters variable for $.getJSON("articles.php", parameters) ? We should pass there geo: place.postal_code json.

Define the articles before you call the $.getJSON query, like:

var articles = "";
$.getJSON("articles.php", parameters)
    .done(function(data, textStatus, jqXHR) {

        articles = "<ul>";

Also you didn't close the <a> tag for title and added unnecessary <div> (we don't need this - div will be added in showInfo()

articles += "<li> <a href=\"" + data[i].link + "\" target=\"_blank\">" + data[i].title + "</a></li>";
