Our Mission

Founded by women to empower women, The Little Market is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to the economic empowerment of women in need around the world through dignified job opportunities. We work with artisans to curate and design beautiful products that preserve cultural techniques and traditions. Each purchase helps to break the cycle of poverty and leads to better lives for the artisans, their families, and their communities.
