The Mother Road Market -- Coming Soon to 11th Street (a/k/a Route 66) in Tulsa
On this edition of StudioTulsa, we learn about the forthcoming Mother Road Market. As was reported last week by KWGS News, when the Lobeck Taylor Family Foundation announced that it would fund this market (to be housed in a empty warehouse at 11th and Lewis in Tulsa): "The Mother Road Market will be a community food destination, allowing Tulsans and tourists alike to eat, sip, shop, and enjoy Tulsa's favorite neighborhood restaurants and brand new food concepts -- all under one roof. The project will cost $5.5 million. The Mother Road Market will be approximately 26,000 square feet [and will] feature 16 small shops at 320 square feet each, plus one shop at 640 square feet. [It] will also feature a bar, a 640-square-foot space to house restaurant pop-ups, an indoor/outdoor seating area, children's activities, a special event space, and easy access for residents and tourists. The foundation says it will feature Tulsa's best local food entrepreneurs and innovators." Our guest today is Shanese Slaton, the project manager for the Mother Road Market.
