Drawing from geography and the concepts of place, territory, scale, and network, we theorize space as an active actor in market dynamics. We revisit existing studies, Humphrey’s (2010a) and Giesler (2012), to demonstrate how space influences the actors, relationships, and outcomes of the creation and evolution of markets.
