Max - General Manager

I started working at the cafe in Nov. 2011. My favorite part of the cafe is all the friends I've made, getting to work with them, and having fun at the cafe every day. I aspire to be a financial planner in the future.

In the future I plan on pursuing a career in marine biology.

Melody - Assistant Manager

My name is Melody, I started working here in the summer of 2017. 

Through the past few years at The Little Market Café I grew from being alone living in an entirely new town to now having a group of people who I call friends and family.

I am currently an Animation student and can’t wait till one day owning my own business :)

Angela - Shift Manager

I started working at the cafe in August 2017. My favorite thing about the cafe is that it’s like my second home. I hope one day to find a career that incorporates working with arts, people with special needs and weekends at the cafe slinging coffee.

Tyler - Barista Team Leader

Oh hey there, Tyler and such; I began working in the coffee business since 2016.

I moved to Ellicott City from Athens, Ohio and began working at The Little Market Cafe in May of 2018.

I love working in Ellicott City because of the strong community and the amazing coworkers that I am so grateful to call my friends.

In the future, I look to start a landscape nursery business.

Have a great day!:)

Chris - Barista

I started working at the cafe in the beginning of the 2017 Summer.

I love the cafe because my coworkers are amazing, the Ellicott City town is beautiful, and the customers are kind. 

In the future, I will be in the UCLA class of 2023. I can’t wait for Los Angeles but I will miss my Little Market family.

Peter - Barista

My name is Peter and I've worked at Little Market Café since August 2018.

Ever since I started venturing into Old Ellicott City to relax and take photos with friends, I thought it would be a great experience to work in such a quaint and homey place, surrounded by history. I wasn't wrong, and the people I've met here are some of the most unique and authentic individuals.

Though I do love coffee, my passion lies mainly with music. When I'm not at the café, you can find me writing songs and experimenting with all kinds of instruments. Maybe you'll see me perform sometime with my band, The Humans. You can listen to my music wherever you listen to music. That is, unless you listen exclusively to vinyl, but I'll get to you soon.
