Jonathon Stranger with Ludivine will serve cocktails and local brews from Coop Ale Works. Coffees, teas and soft drinks will be sold exclusively by Elemental Coffee.

Future events likely will include vendors like Patty Wagon, Copper Cup and the Flying Cotton Brothers. The idea, Merryweather said, is to offer a variety of food and not just feature taco trucks.

Massenat admits the idea of hosting an outdoor food market along Hudson Avenue would have been dismissed as an impossible feat just a few years ago. But the area is in a “fast” transition now, Massenat said, with housing and shops rapidly filling MidTown's empty buildings and lots.

“So many great cities are doing similar events,” Massenat said. “And we're all about helping Oklahoma City continue to grow and become a city with more interesting things to do.”
