Drawing on ethnographic fieldwork, and utilizing a commodity chain and livelihoods approach, the article investigates the dynamics surrounding the cultivation, harvesting and trade of dried cardamom fruit from Hmong cultivators in Lao Cai province to consumers elsewhere in Vietnam and beyond to China and the global market. The spatial and social structures of these commodity chains is analysed, drawing attention to a range of mechanisms of access.
