JMFlogoWEBThe Johnnie Mae Farm is a partnership between the City of Fort Wayne’s Office of Housing & Neighborhood Services, the Purdue Extension - Allen County, Vincent Village, Community Harvest Food Bank, the Renaissance Pointe YMCA and the Renaissance Pointe Neighborhood Association.

In 2015, OHNS completed the historic renovation of former fire station #9, 2518 Winter St., and it became home to the Johnnie Mae Farm. The name pays tribute to long-time neighborhood advocate Johnnie Mae White.

The building is home to a state-of-the-art commercial kitchen, which is available for rent or to community groups.

On Fridays through October, from 4 to 7 p.m., the Johnnie Mae Farm will host a farmer’s market to provide fresh produce to local residents. Possible items for purchase include collard and mustard greens, oregano, thyme, strawberries, radishes, tomatoes, corn, zucchini, green beans, pea pods, peppers, broccoli, cabbage, brussels sprouts and watermelon.
