Project Overview

The Pontiac Street Market is a full-service grocery that will provide fresh, healthy, and affordable food within walking distance of 25,000 residents. The project arose through community input and will improve food access in a USDA-designated Food Desert. The store, which is based on a proven model and operated by a nationally-renowned service provider, will be approximately 10,000 sq. ft. and will be located at the corner of Pontiac and John streets representing an investment of nearly $4 million.

Community Engagement Opportunities

The City of Fort Wayne’s Community Development Neighborhood Planning and Activation Workgroup provided residents of the adjacent neighborhoods an opportunity to provide feedback on preferred products and services offered at the Pontiac Street Market. 

Staff interviewed several dozen people through one-on-one conversations, and hosted three community open house events in the Renaissance PointeLaRez, and Oxford neighborhoods for the public.
