A non-profit founded by women to empower women
The story of The Little Market begins with a friendship. In 2006, we met while studying at the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising (FIDM) and quickly connected over our shared love of design, wanderlust and desire to empower women.
Taking our friendship on the road, we explored the colorful, local markets of Bali and El Salvador and became immediately inspired. We met amazing, vibrant, hard-working women who were creating beautiful products–products we loved and we knew our friends at home would love if only they had the opportunity. After returning home, we began envisioning what it would take to make that possible.
The Little Market launched in 2013 by founders Lauren Conrad and Hannah Skvarla.
