For the Homies The Little Market

I love buying baked goods from Homegirl Café. I always buy their rainbow bread for my daughter—it has the most incredible tie-dye look. I love that every purchase supports job opportunities for people who were previously incarcerated. Ask for a tour to learn more about the amazing work they do!

Fresh Is Best

I go to the farmers market once or twice a week to buy all of our produce. I love buying seasonal fruits and vegetables, and I love supporting local farmers. Make sure to stop by Lily’s Eggs for delicious eggs and beautiful fragrant roses! If you go on Saturday, I recommend getting there early to get the fresh pastries before they sell out.


Shop Small The Little Market

I like to support small businesses that are run by women. Cami and Jax is a very cute bathing suit store on Montana Avenue that is founded and run by two sisters! You are likely to meet one of the sweet sisters while you shop in their cozy store. Try on a few different styles—you will be pleasantly surprised by how flattering their cuts are!


For the Little Ones

Little Moon Society produces their adorable line of tie-dye clothes right here in LA! My kids have grown up in their soft and colorful pieces. If you love it, buy it because each collection sells out quickly.


Global Goods The Little Market

At our shop, The Little Market, global one-of-a-kind items are our specialty. Each item we sell is handmade, so each piece is truly special. The kantha quilts are stunning and each is unique—it’s so fun to shop them in person! They are hand-stitched by women who are at-risk and survivors of trafficking.
