Welcome to Mother Road Market.

The Mother Road Market is Tulsa's FIRST food hall, developed by the Lobeck Taylor Family Foundation. Housed on 11th Street & South Lewis Avenue in the historic 1939 Scrivner-Stevens Co. Grocery building, Mother Road Market promises to be a vibrant community space, allowing Tulsans and tourists alike to eat, sip, shop and enjoy several different food concepts - all under one roof. Customers will also be able to browse special gift items, and pick up fresh ingredients like local produce, meat and dairy to take home and cook their own creations.

Mother Road Market will sit at approximately 27,000 square feet, and features a curated collective of over 20 small shops at 320 square feet each. Mother Road Market will also feature a bar, a demonstration kitchen to house restaurant pop-ups and cooking classes, an indoor/outdoor seating area, children’s activities, and, most importantly, easy access for residents and tourists to a diverse, eclectic range of Tulsa’s best food businesses. 

Food entrepreneurs have the opportunity to use the small shop model to pilot test their latest concepts, without the financial investment of opening a full-scale restaurant or brick-and-mortar business.

Kitchen 66, Tulsa’s kickstart kitchen and program of the Lobeck Taylor Family Foundation, will expand into the Mother Road Market. Tulsa’s food entrepreneurs will have 2,800 square feet of affordable commercial kitchen space to develop new recipes, as well as dedicated storefronts within Mother Road Market to feature their latest food concepts.
