South Korea: Second vertical farming café opens in Incheon

In 2022, Sik Mul Sung introduced a new hospitality format with its Seoul-based vertical farm café. Following the success of its initial location, the concept is back with a second branch.

Sik Mul Sung is the brainchild of agritech start-up N.Thing and architecture practice Unseenbird. The concept allows customers to witness the processes involved in operating a vertical farm, from seeing the vegetables being grown to cooking and eating, all in one place.

The installation has been realized by N.Thing

The new branch is located in a large shopping center in the suburban town of Incheon, sure to introduce many visitors to the innovative farming system. Inside, diners can enjoy salads and ice cream while contemplating the glass-encased cultivation room where ingredients are grown or shop for fresh vegetables, plant kits, seeds, and utensils.

Combining regenerative practices with convenience and entertainment, Sik Mul Sung has found a recipe for success. The concept’s expansion suggests there is room to explore commercial opportunities for new urban farming.
