FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) -- On Friday the Johnnie Mae Farm Market opened for the season on Winter Street.
It's providing fresh fruits, veggies and herbs to neighbors on the southeast side of Fort Wayne.
Everything sold there is grown on location.
Terri Theisen with the Purdue Extension office in Allen County said this is just another option for Fort Wayne residents in food deserts to access healthy food.
"One of the ways you can help alleviate the disparities in food deserts is having available produce," she said. "So that's really what we're trying to do is make it easy for our neighbors to be able to get really healthy fresh produce. This'll be better than anything you can get in a big box store and it'll be at prices that are comparable."
The market is open on Fridays from 2-6 p.m until November.
