Access to food is being implemented in newer and more convenient forms now more than ever before. However, many of the methods that people utilize to purchase food may have substantial adverse health effects. Markets were once centered around a direct exchange of locally grown food and intimate social gatherings. Major developments like the industrialization of agriculture, rapid urbanization, and technological advancements introduced a shift in food market settings. Redefining the design of the market environment can transform a routine task into a valuable experience that nurtures human health and well-being.
In addition to a review of literature, the method for gathering pertinent information will be based on qualitative analyses of case studies concerning seven different food-based retailers, ranging from supercenters to local farmers markets. These case studies will provide insight into the benefits as well as the adverse health effects of their design. A proposed design of an alternative market environment has been developed using the information gathered from the review of literature and case study analyses. The conceptual design demonstrates that an alternative approach can serve as a model for food-based environments that primarily focus on the aspects that positively influence the consumers’ immediate response and general well-being.
