Abstract: The objective of this article is to reveal ingenious processes in the production of urban space to serve economic development, and through this process to transform street vendors into "otherness" in the urban space. The conceptual framework relies on the idea of producing social space using a discourse analysis method. The results show that under the capitalism ideology, the state produces urban space by creating the perception of urban meaning and spatial practice. The street vendors are thereby being treated as disorderly and inefficient traders, defined as meaningless and therefore they must be kept away from urban space. This article suggests questions for the capitalist ideology that controls the production of urban meaning, and suggests another urban meaning that values the diversity of impartial living togetherness in urban space.
