Informal Urban Farmers Market

Informal Urban Farmers Market located in the city center provides affordable and accessible food for neighbors. Urban farmers can gain more economic benefits by reducing the supply chain. It is also environmentally beneficial because of the shorten transportation distances.
        Urban farmers are classified as informal workers and their markets are also informal and operate without accurate space and time definitions. The informal market proposed through the project is set up inside an urban farm in downtown Johannesburg and sells products grown by farmers directly within the space. Through a more effective and productive supply chain, farmers can increase production and neighbors can easily purchase products.
        Informal Urban Farmers Market is a modular structure that can be changed to suit the configuration of the farm. It is not only for display, but also storage and vertical farms.
