Littleton’s Market aims to open pavilion in spring, store in summer

Despite supply-chain challenges, a co-owner of a new supermarket being built at the Tremont Center hopes to have an outdoor feature open to the public this spring, followed by the opening of the full store in the summer.

Work is progressing at what will be Littleton’s Market, which will occupy the site of the former UA Food Market, Huffman’s Market, Tremont Cardinal and Tom Tarpy’s Market. A full renovation of the site will include a roughly 5,000-square-foot expansion of the previous ventures and construction of an outdoor pavilion.

Rob Littleton, co-owner of Littleton's Market, stands in the store at 2140 Tremont Center as construction continues. Littleton hopes to open the outdoor pavilion in the spring and the full store in the summer.

When the project was announced in March, Rob Littleton said he hoped to open Littleton’s Market at 2140 Tremont Center by “mid-December.” Littleton and his father-in-law Alan Scantland are co-owners.

However, Littleton said delays in obtaining materials brought on by supply-chain issues and supplies going to other large projects in the region have delayed those plans.

Littleton said he hopes the outdoor pavilion, which will be open-air but will be under roof and lined with heaters, will be open by spring. However, he said he’s still working out details of what types of food, drinks and community activities might be offered.
