Market on the Farm Could Redefine the Grocery Trip

See how one man is shaking up the way we select and purchase food—by giving local communities a hands-on experience from farm to feed. Filmmakers Gary Breece and Russell Hawkins reveal a new kind of grocery shopping at Ben Greene’s market, the Farmery. Greene’s crop cultivation method allows customers to harvest and buy produce on-site from living wall panels. Greene hopes this will change people’s relationship with what they eat, creating “an intimate connection with their food that they won’t experience anywhere else.”
