Abstract

The article analyzes the relationship between the existence of street vendors and the city flow of pedestrians and travellers in constant movement. This interdependence increases and shift places within the city accordingly with the costumers that are also itinerants. It is assumed that, informal commercial activities in public spaces (or listed as public access) have been developed in a analog way to the itinerant consum practices of street buyers within the "metropolization" of the city of San José.
