Farmers Markets

Helical Outpost™ facilitates local Farmers Markets

The Helical Outpost™ provides standardized tools and a standardized economic model for a marketplace hub to produce a base level volume of fresh produce to support food distribution in local communities.

The unique design and size make it compact enough to fit in community spaces, rooftops, and backyards, but large enough to build a farmers market around.

Helical Outpost™ Food Production

The Helical Outpost™ utilizes hydroponics, cultivating plants in water, rather than in soil. The recirculating hydroponic systems conserve, reuse and re-circulate water and minerals. For many high volume consumable crops, these systems are by far the most efficient method of plant cultivation in the world.

The Helical Outpost™ creates:

  • More than 10 times the produce compared to other agricultural methods
  • Up to 2,300 crop units per week
  • Up to 350 pounds of vining crops per week

  • 80% less water compared to traditional agricultural methods
  • A small fraction of the minerals compared to traditional farming methods
  • 90% less land compared to soil based agricultural methods

The Helical Outpost™ as a Community Marketplace

The Helical Outpost™ provides standardized tools and a standardized economic model for a marketplace hub to produce a base level volume of fresh produce to support food distribution in local communities.

Farmers Markets, Food-to-Table, Farm-to-Fork and Community-supported agriculture (CSA) are alternative, locally based economic models of agriculture and food distribution

The Helical Outpost™ condenses the productivity of 3 acres of traditional farmland into 3,000 square feet, that quickly begins yielding crops for consumption, sale or whole sale.

For example, a local restaurant in an urban area that wants to grow their own produce, a local school or community interested in providing students a hands-on learning experience in the core curriculum of STEM, a foreign government interested in state-of-the-art agricultural technology to help provide resources for their citizens, or rural areas that lack local food options; among many others.
