Green Market

Finding a Green Market on a ship is unusual to say the least. The idea was started by the Langport's previous CO's who insisted on having a selection of fresh food available on ship. He hired some very creative farmers to make a greenbelt area where crops could be grown in neat little plots that lined the floor in terraced steps and even up the walls, hanging off supports and even from the ceiling. Later on, he also implemented tanks for fresh seafood and small animal pens.

The Market came up about a year after the first large crop output when the various crew began requesting access to fresh foods without having to get them through the lounges or on doctor's orders only. It is a fairly open structure, long and only wide enough for three aisles side by side. If buyers don't wish to pay, they trade for hours spent working the greenbelt.

Specialty items like fresh fruit wines, jams and jellies, soaps and other handmade craft items are also able to be purchased here.
