TULSA, Okla. - Tulsa's first food hall is finally scheduled to have its grand opening.
Mother Road Market, a non-profit development, will give local food entrepreneurs a place to sell food and find support and guidance from others in the industry.
The Lobeck Taylor Family Foundation and Mayor G.T. Bynum announced the development of the food hall near 11th and Lewis in July 2017. The Lobeck Taylor Family Foundation is spearheading the project and hopes it will help spur development along Route 66.
Mother Road Market will include a mixed collection of nearly 20 businesses that are well-established as well as those new to the food industry.
Andolini's Pizzeria, & Tacos, and Kitchen 66 Takeover Cafe are among many to be included in the food hall. CLICK HERE to see more information about each food tenant expected to be there.
Mother Road Market is scheduled to hold its grand opening on Friday, November 2 with a press conference and ribbon-cutting ceremony.
The 27,000 square foot food hall has a slate of grand opening weekend events planned that will be open to the public. Events scheduled for the weekend include live screen printing, mini golf, and yoga.
"The Lobeck Taylor Family Foundation team had the goal to build a food innovation district along Route 66 so that we could decrease barriers for Tulsa food startups. We researched, tested and collaborated with community stakeholders to build Mother Road Market and we can’t wait to celebrate the grand opening with the Tulsa community on November 2." - LTFF CEO Elizabeth Frame Ellison.
