This week’s guest on the Listen Frontier podcast is Shanese Slaton. She’s got one of the coolest new jobs in the city — project manager of Mother Road Market.

Ever been to Chelsea Market in New York City?

How about The Denver Central Market?

Or the Oxbow Public Market in Napa, Calif.?

These public markets offer a little bit of everything: fresh food, quality restaurants, a coffee shop or two, and artisan shops. And much more.

Now Tulsa is getting into the act. The Lobeck Taylor Family Foundation recently announced the development of the $5.5 million Mother Road Market. The market will be located in the historic Scrivner-Stevens Grocery building on the southwest corner of 11th Street and south Lewis Avenue.

The market will feature a bar and space for 17 small shops, including several operating under Kitchen 66’s business incubator program. The project will also include indoor/outdoor seating, event space and a restaurant operated by Andolini’s.
