The Little French Market was devestated by a historic flash flood that recently hit Ellicott City, MD. 

The Market has been home to live music every weekend this summer. The owners put on shows every friday and saturday and welcome everyone into their community. I am completely heartbroken they are now forced to closed. The flood washed away the entire sidewalk in the courtyard.  Insurance is not covering any of these damages to the building.

Jeni Porter, Johnathan Postma, Cathy Ferguson, and Kimberly Kepnes, owners of the market, are leaders of Ellicott City. They give so much to our beautiful community.  It shows in the events they host, cater, and particpate in. They are my family and family to everyone in Ellicott City. 

100% of donations will go to the recovery of The Little French Market, the beautiful courtyard, and stage. 

Please share and donate if you can! The Little French Market is planning to come back bigger and stronger than ever!

I've known Jeni since the mid 70's, I think of her as a sister. I love her family. We've had the pleasure of meeting many of her EC family on our visit to your lovely town while strolling down Main St. We are heartbroken for you all!! It warms my heart to know you have Jeni in your corner. She is one of the kindest people I know. Love you GF!!

Hands-down, the Little French Market and its courtyard (with its concerts and markets) was one of the best things to ever happen to Ellicott City. I loved sitting there on a weekend morning and enjoying a cup of its excellent coffee and looking at the beautiful flowers. The Friday and Saturday concerts were the BEST! This business and this space brought not only a very European sensibility to this charming spot, but engendered a sense of community that we are all craving in this day and age. The owners of the Little French Market appear to have a clear vision of what a small town community can - and should- look and feel like. I support that vision and wish there were more people like you in every community. Please know that your vision and your hard work are both noticed and appreciated. I can't give a lot of money, although I truly wish I could. Please accept my small donation and my heartfelt support and appreciation.
