An innovative urban farm and market constructed from shipping containers that grows and sells its produce at the same site.

The Farmery is composed of 4 shipping containers, each outfitted with a gourmet mushroom growing system on the inside and growing panels on the outside walls where herbs, lettuces, greens, strawberries, and other small crops are grown. There are lean-to greenhouses attached to the sides of the shipping containers and a central greenhouse that spans the two stacks of shipping containers. The Farmery is designed to be constructed very cheaply and quickly by using low-cost shipping containers and standard greenhouse components. A market exists on the bottom floor of the central greenhouse and in one of the bottom containers where customers can purchase the crops grown at the Farmery as well as crops from local farmers and producers. The Farmery occupies a total space of 55ā€™ x 55ā€™, making it ideal for urban neighborhoods. The Farmery can be scaled up to meet a higher demand by adding additional levels or lengthening the Farmery.
