The Johnnie Mae Farm Stand, located at 2518 Winter St., is now closed for the season.

This season, volunteers and staff harvested and distributed more than 2,000 pounds of fruits and vegetables grown on-site. Collard, turnip, and mustard greens; onions; radishes; tomatoes; sweet corn; summer squash; peas; green beans; peppers; cauliflower; cucumbers; broccoli; okra; potatoes; cabbage; eggplant; watermelon and many more were all been available at the farm stand.

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.

In 2015, the City of Fort Wayne’s 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. The City and the Purdue Extension – Allen County also began farming the vacant residential lots behind the fire station and have been working to distribute fresh produce to local residents ever since. The farm is named after long-time neighborhood advocate Johnnie Mae White.
