Marketscaping: A Tool for Downtown Revitalization and Urban Agriculture

"Marketscaping" is a new term coined by Green Leaf Environmental Planning for the process of utilizing farmers' and artisans' markets as a tool for downtown revitalization.

Markets may be in temporary or permanent locations in the downtown to create a sense of place, activate the creative class, and catalyze the local economy.
