what vendors are saying...
Lillian, Brightly & Lillian Jewelry
The crucial part of being a small business, is the sense of community that comes alongside with it. Community and collective well-being are central to my personal values, and I deeply appreciate how this virtue was brought forward, emphasized and fostered by Little Modern Market. Kind vendors, warm clients and inspiring small businesses made my time as a vendor participant (and a shopper for the moments I could sneak away), so memorable. Thank you Melissa, for being so personable. Running a small business could be a vulnerable experience, and your warmth was a light.
Carolina, Canine Endeavour
This was our first time as a vendor at Little Modern Market and we loved every minute of it. The venue, atmosphere, and marketing leading up to the event were all amazing. Thank you Melissa, for putting on a wonderful event that brings the local community together. We will definitely be back.
We had a lovely first market in Calgary with LMM! All the vendors and customers we met were very friendly and supportive. Great introduction to the Calgary scene! I also really appreciated Melissa's organization and communications prior to the market. The event is super well planned!
Carol, Forest & Field Aromatherapy
The market was amazing and Melissa did a wonderful job taking care of so many details. It was a unique experience to have so many extended opportunities from a market and I truly appreciate it.
Little Modern Market was such a fun experience! Everyone was so happy to be there, and my sales showed it! Thank you for having us, we can’t wait to come again!
Sarah, Little Lott Clothing Co.
Melissa, you truly do an amazing job planning these markets. I love the email list - far more valuable than IG followers. The venue is always great, hours are perfect and is a fun day overall. I also loved shopping all of the vendors!!
Lisa, Surf Scents
LMM offers one of the most beautiful market experiences in Calgary. From the venue, to the quality of the products, it's a must!
Erin, Born Brewing Co.
We had a great time at the market! So many awesome vendors, beautiful location and a great crowd!
Carly, Link Haus
My first experience with LMM was simply amazing as a vendor. I felt supported, included, and celebrated as a member of the LMM family. Melissa actively promoted my little shop to her followers, which really meant the world to me. Can’t wait to come back!
Abby, Blink Studio
Loved being apart of LMM! It was such a blast and Melissa was such a great host. She made me feel as prepared as possible and offered all the help she could give during set up. Couldn’t thank her enough!
Aelie, Hello Amino
Little Modern Market is one of my favourite markets! Beautiful venues, always an excellent turnout with a beautifully curated vendor selection. I love that she includes photo/video options at really affordable rates to allow a small business the chance to get professional photos. Awesome job marketing to bring in a great crowd and just a pleasure to deal with Melissa. She's organized and fun to work with. I also really appreciate that she doesn't let vendors do two back to back markets (even though I want to!), this ensures her customers always have a fresh market with new vendors and everyone gets a chance.
Nikki, One Tree Orchard
LMM was amazing. I felt like I was always kept up to date on everything and there were so many great opportunities to grow my business. The market turnout was unexpected and Melissa does a great job making sure everyone is seen, promoted and works hard to make it a successful day for everyone. Thanks!
Adam, Soul Bowl Kitchen
We've been a part of the LMM twice now, and its such a well ran & executed event. The curated vendor line up is always the best and great for making new vendor friends! And of course all of the market guests are amazing for coming out and supporting all of the amazing local businesses
Breanne, Blush & Love
Melissa you put on an incredible market! There were so many incredible vendors. We had such a great time and hope to be apart of one again! Thank you for having us!
Jennifer, Maude Kids
I have been a vendor at Little Modern Market twice now, and both experiences were great. The organization and marketing was amazing, and the support for the vendors, including optional add-ons like mini-photo sessions, and community created among the vendors and customers has been incredible. Thank you!
Leslie, Camp Brand Goods
This was our first time doing LMM and it definitely won't be our last! The venue and layout were wonderful and we saw so many friendly faces, both familiar and brand new! Can't walt to come back :)
Kait, Barefoot And Blonde
This was a wonderful experience from start to finish. This was our first market in Canada after many many years of trading at markets, major music festivals and pop up stores in Australia. You are very organised and the market is curated both professionally and aesthetically.
Ash, STUNN Collective
I cannot say enough good things about LLM. It is always a runaway success for us, and the opportunities for us as vendors leading up to the market like affordable photoshoots, influencer engagement, and brand awareness through social media and giveaways are extremely effective and impactful, not to mention unparalleled in the Calgary market space. The amount of effort, focus, and hard work Melissa puts into each market pays off tenfold for everyone involved, from vendors to shoppers. I cannot recommend Little Modern Market enough! It is genuinely the best market in the city.
Sarah, Kopr & Co.
Melissa always puts on such a fabulous market, everything is so well organized. LMM is definitely one of the top markets in Alberta and it has quickly become one of my favourite markets to be a part of. 10/10
Tyler, Devon + Lang
Little Modern Market connects the best customers with amazing vendors. It builds a community with our current fans, and helps us find new customers to fall in love with our products.
Bre, Peanut And Bumble
Melissa puts on an amazing market. It's incredibly well organized leading up to and including market day. The crowd that comes is enthusiastic and loves supporting local shops. It's definitely one of my favourite markets to be in in Calgary!
Sam, One Crafty Mother
Melissa puts on an amazing show! Very well organized and promoted, with oodles of incentives. The photo opportunities are an amazing bonus. We will continue to attend as long as we are welcome!
Kayda, Kay Paper Co.
I feel Little Modern Market is one my favorites to do. Always a great turn out and so much variety. I’ve always had the best booth buddies so all the other vendors are always so kind.
Freya, Wildlife Distillery
Really well advertised and executed, its a pleasure to be a part of this market!
Erin, Back Of The Spoon
Unique Vendors, Amazing Attendance and Beautiful Location. It's a Vibe. Just the Best.
Dalyce, The Friday Collective
Little Modern Market was our first market ever and it was such an amazing experience. We had so much fun getting everything prepared for the day. Between the mini shoots we got to do with Social People Co, to the day itself and all of the support Melissa gave us. Couldn’t have asked for a better first Market experience. We were completely welcomed by the entire community and are so thankful to be given the opportunity to be apart of it
Sky, Olive Branch Baby Boutique
Incredible market and incredibly well run! Organized and overall wonderful experience, this is my second time being a vendor at this market and I honestly wouldn’t go anywhere else 100% recommend!
Mariya, AM Cleaning
Busy, curated, truly local market. You can get the most unique pieces right here at LMM for anyone and anything! Highly recommend.
Ashley, Nova Rae Candle Co.
Melissa puts on one of THE best markets in town! Not only are the venues absolutely gorgeous, but she really puts in the work behind the scenes to make it the most enjoyable AND successful market for the vendors!
Owaiz, Sac & Shoo
The first time we became a part of the LMM family was at the March 2023 market. To see a line of people extending out the ATCO Commons doors at 9:30am on a somewhat cold morning was extremely warming to our vendor hearts :) From the communications and giveaway / influencer gifting opportunities leading up to the market, to the market day organization and post-market engagement, Melissa and LMM enable every vendor to put their best foot forward and connect with the YYC community.
We love Little Modern Market! It's always busy, full of so many vendors I want to shop with myself and organized super well. Highly recommend!
Nathalie, Peach & Teal
We would like to express that our experience with Little Modern Market was unparalleled. Melissa went above and beyond to ensure that we felt welcome and included in the event. The market exuded an inviting atmosphere and positive vibes, which attracted a diverse range of visitors. From the initial communication to the days following the event, we felt a strong sense of belonging to the Little Modern Market family. Overall, it was an exceptional experience that left us feeling incredibly grateful and satisfied. Thank you!
Trista, Lanase Beauty
Amazing market and opportunity to promote your business. From the beautiful locations, number of customers that go through the market, and opportunities you get like discounted photoshoots + influencer collaborations; this market is well worth the money invested to attend.
We loved this market! Definitely one of the best since we started our business :) And such great opportunities for networking! Everything was so well organized and communication was great. We loved being part of the market giveaway as well - that was a nice touch! Thank you for having us!
Carmen, Thunderloft Paper
Well organized, prompt responses, I feel valued as a vendor :)
Megan, The Candle Box
Being part of Little Modern Market was a fantastic experience. It was not only rewarding and enriching, but brought a great opportunity to showcase my products, interact with all the customers and to connect with all the amazing vendors. I was very impressed with how organized the whole event was and can't wait to be part of LMM again in the future. Megan Smiley, The Candle Box
Jill, Our Heritage Wheat Co
I am amazed at LMM. It was such a blast to connect with other vendors, and I am in awe of how many friendly, and supportive customers there were. It was such a great experience, and I felt like it gave me more confidence as a small business owner that I can dream bigger to!
