See it Live, Buy it Local!

Each year the Artists' Market fills all 88 booths at the Farmers Market location in a unique, once-a-year, can't miss event.  No admission fee! Just come!

Over 70 established  artists are juried into the Ithaca Artists' Market each year to showcase and sell some of the best art in the region. Visitors to the market have the special opportunity to meet and talk with all these artists in one place and to buy works of all shapes, sizes, and disciplines: paintings, prints, photographs, functional work, sculpture, stained glass, collage, fiber art and digital work. Now including books, music, video and more!

In addition to the artists, about 12 Tompkins County arts organizations have booths, giving the public a chance to learn about their mission, and maybe get a sneak preview of their upcoming events!

The remaining booths feature food vendors offering everything from full meals to desserts, and wine. (See list below)

Music sets the mood all day long with the East Hill Jazz Group with local musicians Johnny Russo, on trumpet and trombone, Doug Robinson on guitar, Brian Earle on clarinet and London McDaniels on bass. 

Check out the slide show in left hand column!

Our goal is to provide the public with a varied show as well as giving local artist the opportunity to sell.
