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

Auteur :
BROMLEY, R.D.F.

Description :
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.
