Market-place trading and the transformation of retail space in the expanding Latin American city

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



The global spread of the supermarket and the planned shopping centre is transforming retail space in the Latin American city. Market-place trading has continued to flourish in most cities. A case study of Quito shows how new periodic markets have been established and that these are consolidated into daily markets. Much of the dynamism in market-place trading is associated with government intervention, with principal policies being the creation of markets in poorly served urban areas and a reduction in the concentration of trading in the historic centre
