The most recent in a series of shipping container food halls that attract independent retailers, encourage social cohesion, and boost local economies

In the chef’s garden, passion fruit vines, citrus and herb ground cover are cultivated for restaurant use. The passion fruit is harvested by Honey & Butter restaurant as an ingredient for its macarons. Planned for the center of the garden is a raised area with a communal table set among herbs, spices, flowers and seasonal vegetables. The re-purposed containers are cost-effective; they can be assembled quickly; they are well-suited for local, independent vendors; and they efficiently transform underused parcels into thriving destinations.
