The Johnnie Mae Farm Market, located in the Renaissance Pointe Neighborhood at 2518 Winter St., is now open on Fridays throughout the summer and early fall from 2 to 6 p.m.
The Farm Market offers vegetables grown on-site and this week will include cucumbers, collards, kale, beets, summer squash, zucchini, herbs, okra and green tomatoes. Cash and SNAP/WIC are accepted. Also this week, free samples of prepackaged cucumber salads will be available, first come first serve.
Operation of the Johnnie Mae Farm is a partnership between the City of Fort Wayne’s Office of Housing & Neighborhood Services and the Purdue Extension – Allen County office. In 2015, the Office of Housing & Neighborhood Services completed the historic renovation of former fire station #9 and equipped it with a state-of-the-art commercial grade kitchen, which is available for rent or use by community groups.
