Home Food Gardening: U.S. Market Trends & Opportunities

Download Sample

Many consumers have a food garden and engage in food gardening because they enjoy gardening, like the outdoors, and think it is satisfying to care for plants and see their work yield results.

More consumers are planting a food garden because they:
  • think produce grown at home is healthier or more nutritious
  • believe that homegrown produce tastes better
  • want to know where their food comes from and what impact it has on the world
  • are questioning whether factory farming is good for people or the environment due to concerns about climate change
In 2020, the coronavirus pandemic had a significant effect on food gardening activity. Packaged Facts has found that over 25% of consumers agree they are planting a food garden because of the pandemic. Survey results also reveal that those who live in a household with a food garden are more likely to be concerned about the pandemic, to report negative personal effects, and to be changing their habits as a result of the coronavirus.

As consumers have been staying at home more and looking to find new hobbies, many have taken up gardening for personal enjoyment or simply as a more productive way to spend their time. With a focus on “what’s next” and current consumer trends, Home Food Gardening: U.S. Market Trends & Opportunities is packed with insights about consumer trends, behavior, and motivations to help food and beverage producers, producers of gardening consumables and gardening equipment, retailers, packaging companies, employers, and investors gauge consumer perspectives and find areas for growth in a competitive market.
