Shift Architecture Urbanism created a concept that adapts the design of street food markets to support social distancing during the time of a global pandemic. The Hyperlocal Micro Markets offer a way for people to enjoy fresh air and purchase fresh produce from local producers, all while maintaining a safe distance from others. The design is based around a system of grids that can be set up to make it easy for people to follow the recommended guidelines for separation.
The public market concept was developed to relieve pressure on supermarkets and give people a safe and alternative means of keeping themselves fed. The solution is also one that considers vulnerable groups that may not be able to afford supermarket shopping.
