Street Vendors as Global Entrepreneurs

Abstract [en]

This paper examines street vendors as entrepreneurs in the mix of urban public life. While current research focuses on specific groups of ‘global peddlers’– particularly migrants  - we trace the diversity of street sellers across geographic locations, from those who manage year-round stalls in fixed places, to those who carry their goods on their backs in cities far from home. For some it is seasonal work, for others it is a way to supplement a steady income, while for others vending is a way to get by.

Vendors establish connections to other cultures and places, through their wares and their performances in public space.  Many use media including the Internet to market their wares, or to maintain networks and support among vendors. Vending emerges as a cosmopolitan practice, involving commodification of culture and cultural products, that creates links between diverse localities and histories, performed in cities across the globe.
