ABSTRACT
The main purpose of this article is to show that the economic structure of everyday life can be understood like a system of cultural classification. It focuses on three analytic dimensions: the spatial arrangement of the economy of everyday life in contemporary urban enclaves; the social life of merchandizing and services, and the interactions that constitute the social actors who participate in these processes. This point is developed by a comparative study of public markets and supermarkets. The article refers to structuralist, symbolic, anthropological and economic points of view.
