The Eden Market south of Great Falls is opening…soon. They had originally planned to open this month, but apparently there is a problem regarding zoning.
I stopped by a few days ago, and remodeling is well underway:
The Eden Market is what used to be known as the Outback Market; it’s about 4 miles south of Overlook (Flag Hill) Drive on Lower River Road.
They’ve got big plans for the store: “Eden Market is your locally owned and operated neighborhood convenience store. We’re your one-stop shop for fresh groceries, sundries, and more.”
They posted on their Facebook page a few days ago: “We have some discouraging news folks. The Eden Market opening has been delayed due to a county mobile home zoning issue. The grandfathered exception has expired.”
I’m not sure what the zoning problem is, but they plan to bring the issue up at two Cascade County Commission meetings over the next few weeks.
Whatever the problem is, I hope it gets resolved – and soon. It looks like a really cool small business that would be very much appreciated by folks who live in the area.
