Potomac French Market & Sprinkles in Potomac

Inspired by a Love of Beautiful Things

The Potomac French Market was established in 2017 by Teri Troxell and Rene Redfield Shaw who were inspired by their love of beautiful things and the prospect of enhancing their homes. The shop was recently voted Best Gift Store in our 2022 Readers' Choice issue.

Teri and Rene have always enjoyed the open-air shops of New Orleans and Paris and their beautiful hometown of Potomac, thus inspiring the name, Potomac French Market. They hope visitors will find treasures at their market, which is an 'experience store' meaning products are different every time you visit. From vintage antiques to up-cycled modern pieces, the Potomac French Market is a treasure trove.

“It is important for any business owner to participate in the locality,” Sprinkles Co-owner Courtney Spaeth says, we sponsor a lot of community events, from regional schools to senior centers. As a long-time part of the local community, we see it as part of our responsibility to support as much as possible given that we are a small business."
