Welcome to Metropolis Farms.
Philadelphia – New York - Washington D.C. – Baltimore – Boston – Beyond
We built Philadelphia’s first commercial Flash-Farm on South Water Street minutes from the south Philly Italian market made famous in the Rocky movies. The produce is amazing and we already have a strong commitment to take everything we produce. The South Water street farm has actually achieved two vertical farming firsts. In addition to being the first commercial vertical farm in the history of the City of Brotherly Love, it is also the first commercial vertical farm built on the second floor of a commercial building. This was done not only to illustrate how easily our technology can be adapted to an urban building but also to show how lower cost underutilized space can easily be converted into a profitable flash farm.
The local market for produce in the greater Philadelphia area is huge and our fresh produce is in high demand, we haven’t even scratched the surface of the Philadelphia produce market. Philadelphia is the 5th largest city in the Unites States, however, if you include the greater Philadelphia area, Philadelphia is easily the second largest city in the United States, about twice the size of Los Angelis, Huston or Chicago. It is also within 1 day’s drive of 60% of the population of the United States. Like most cities in the United States the food demands of the Philadelphia Region will support the efforts of multiple flash farms growing and selling fresh produce to 6.5 plus million residents and thousands of restaurants and markets. We are already planning a second Philadelphia farm focusing on different crops than our Water Street location.
Prospective investors and joint venture partners are welcome to stop by the Philadelphia Flash Farm by appointment. We are presently working on flash farm proposals in New York City, Washington D.C., and Baltimore in addition to expanding Philadelphia.
