Oasis Fresh Market Opens In Tulsa Food Desert

May 11, 2021 5:25 pm

A new grocery store opened Tuesday at the Shoppes on Peoria, the result of a long project to get better and fresher food into Tulsa’s food desert.

The store, north of downtown Tulsa, celebrated their soft opening Tuesday, but many people aren’t waiting for the grand opening next week – they’ve been waiting too long to get a nearby grocery store.

The new grocery store helps eliminate a food desert for the neighborhood around Pine and Peoria. Though another grocery store is one mile east, the new Oasis Fresh Market is the first full-service grocery store for the area since Albertson’s sold their store in 2007.
