Alternative Eating: Brookside Gets New Local Food Market

Eating well is one of the great passions of the AltTulsa team. So we were pleased this week to see an new alternative market opening in the 3500 block of South Peoria in Tulsa's Brookside neighborhood.

The Center One Market brings together four local vendors who will offer an indoor farmers' market in Brookside on the site once occupied by a Wendy's restaurant.

The new market includes Nuyaka Farm, Farrell Bread, Dawson's Market, and Petals and Soup. These vendors will offer organic produce, antibiotic-free beef, take-home dinners, homemade soups, artisan breads, and much more.

Center One Market will be open Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Expect to see us there.

I love the idea that this farmers' market has hours over more than one day. I know it takes a lot of organizing to do this, and I can't imagine that everyone involved is getting rich. Wouldn't be nice if the people who ran/participated in farmers' markets were the types of people who struck it rich in this country?
Anyway, my family and several of my friends appreciate Tulsa's farmers' markets and all they do to bring us yummy, healthful food, even if they can't take what we pay them and use it for a shopping spree at Miss Jackson's.

And as a bonus, the Center One folks replaced a suburban-style fast food joint with a traditional pedestrian-friendly commercial building that fronts the sidewalk and fits right into Brookside.
