I like Sprouts, but I feel that the "Farmer's Market" title is misleading.  Their produce and meats come from all over the place just like any other grocery store.  Their prices are also very low, which is good, but it's not a farmers market in the sense I think of them.  A Fresh Market will do well in Utica Square, but I'm sad to see Petty's go out.  Is it not an option for Petty to revamp the store in a Fresh Market type style?  It is certainly in need of updating.

Fresh Market's "prepared foods" seem to be a wider selection and better than sprouts, and that is something that Petty's seemed to sell a lot of.

Miss Jackson's is from another era.

Could be.  I don't buy the prepared food.  I get meat when it's on sale.  It has a lot less "natural juices" than other places.  I hate paying several $/lb for salt water.

I tend to ignore the "Farmer's Market" portion of their name/sign.  Maybe they are referring to the  produce stands which are more "Farmer's Market" like than other grocery stores.

I was in Petty's a few times looking for some specialty stuff.  While there I looked at their staples.  Same stuff as other stores but priced noticeably higher.  Utica Square is a drive from 111th & Memorial so it would need to be something I couldn't get out south for me to go there.

My guess: Fresh Market in the Petty's space (based on what others have already said) and Crate & Barrel in the Miss Jackson's space.

yeah, too small. I looked it up and Miss Jackson's is only 30,000 square feet, unless there's a massive rebuild taking out parking there's no large department store going in there.

Van Maur is probably just waiting for Sears to go belly up at Woodland, which could be any day now.

But it's your place to be a little kid singsoning "I know something you don't know".

While I've been in Tulsa almost 40 years, this song is the first time I heard the name "Miss Jackson" and so it pops in my head every time I visit this thread or Utica Square:

I wish Central Market would open in Tulsa, but this space seems too small.

Central Market would be fantastic, blows away Whole Foods and others by a mile in my opinion.  I was addicted to it when I lived in Dallas.  But Utica Square is too small of a space.

Helmerich and Payne owns Miss Jacksons as well as Utica Square.  Does anyone know if they also own Petty's?

Last I knew Scott Petty still owned it.
