Sustainable Food Market
As a peoples’ market, the Smithfield market should exemplify opportunities for a shared future reflecting Birmingham’s ties to its historical trades as the civic place of gathering for a diverse community under a single roof. Carefully, unearthing its historical layers we seek new paradigms to inform our “virtuous cycles”. Thus creating generational, social and physical continuities with the city’s past and present to serve its youth.
Questioning the farm to table cycle, our ambition is to use the Smithfield Market as an exemplary eco-system in acknowledging its diverse uses; as a food and rag market, its trading history and its potential as a learning market for the future.
