Our first concept was based off of the idea that the farmer’s market should have a strong rustic and sustainable feel. This space provides an atmosphere that is genuine in the passion for local food. The importance of consuming food products that are homegrown and as native as they can be is something that is important to both the farmers and the consumers. The site plan of this concept is very organic in the way that each permanent structure is designed, how each stall is set up and how authentic the feel of the entire space offers.
The attached picture is what we presented when gaining feedback on all three of our concepts. With this particular concept, the idea of keeping the site earthy and consistent with the authenticity within a farmer’s market was well liked. Using recycled wood materials for each permanent structure brought positive feedback as
well. The layout of this concept, however, received mixed feedback. The open center area inside of the pathway was liked by some because it provided a great opportunity for socialization as well as space for anyone to view the entire site. This openness was sometimes not as well liked because the area is not very structured and could possibly be used for more garden area.
