Pontiac Street Market Website Page Header

The Pontiac Street Market project in the Renaissance Pointe and Oxford neighborhoods was identified as a priority project from the 2021 Southeast Strategy Update. Residents expressed the desire to see additional grocery and food services in areas that are designated a food desert.

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 is inviting residents and nearby business owners to provide feedback on preferred products and services offered at the highly anticipated Pontiac Street Market, a full-service grocery store in southeast Fort Wayne at 918. E. Pontiac St. The goal of these events is to encourage the community to share their input for the future of the store. 

Light refreshments will be provided while supplies last. For questions about accessibility or to request accommodations, please call 311.
