New food truck park addresses ‘Food Desert’ in Greenwood District

TULSA, Okla. — Tulsa’s newest, food truck park, EAT36STN, has debuted its new location at Northland Shopping Center in the heart of the Phoenix District, revitalizing a food desert, 36th Street North announced.

The EAT36STN food truck park is part of a larger effort to bring new life to the Phoenix District through Tulsa’s Vibrant Neighborhood Partnership—a community-driven partnership between the City, community partners, and local residents to improve neighborhood infrastructure and encourage new developments, 36th Street North said.

Tracie Chandler, CEO of the Phoenix Development Council which exists to bring the 36th Street North small area plan to fruition, is thrilled to see EAT36STN leading the way in bringing a greater variety of food, entrepreneurship and community spirit to the 36 Street North Corridor.

“When we surveyed residents both in the District and around the city, they told us that a variety of food options are highly desirable here” explains Chandler. “Food brings us together, food is great for the community, and it’s a great tourist attraction.”

Vendors at the food truck park include: Soul Food on Wheels, 918 War Room, Sugar Ruth Bakery, and Country Q. Other trucks and residencies are welcomed, and those interested can fill out an application online at the EAT36STN website.

To visit the EAT36STN food trucks, make your way to Northland Center, located at 505 E 36th St. N., Tulsa. Trucks are currently scheduled to be there on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays.
