As a growing number of consumers opt for locally sourced food over imported ingredients, London's 'FARM:shop' is paving the way for sustainable eating. Instead of simply opting for food grown in the surrounding area, FARM:shop takes the concept of farm-to-table dining one step further by growing food on-site.

FARM:shop is a "farm in a shop" located in the heart of London. The lower portion of the venue serves a cafe and events venue for local artists, while the rest of the shop is decked out with a aquaponics fish farm, a chicken coop and a flower shop. This allows the staff to grow fresh ingredients on-site, which are then used to create delicious meals for the cafe.

As a green movement continues to gain steam, London's FARM:shop is the perfect place for those attending Trend Hunter’s London innovation conference to see urban farming in action.
