Each year, CAP organizes and facilitates a summer and winter juried show and sale of work by local artists. The Ithaca Artists' Market has become a summer fixture for more than 20 years. The Holiday Market draws holiday shoppers and is part of downtown's Winter Festival.

22nd Annual Ithaca Artists' Market!
The Artists' Market fills all 88 booths at the Farmers Market location in a unique, once-a-year, can't miss event. (Directions below.)
Over 70 established visual 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. No admission fee.
In addition to the visual artists, 17 Tompkins County arts organizations will 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 will feature food vendors offering everything from full meals to desserts, chocolate, wine and beer. Music will set the mood all day long with local musicians Johnny Russo, on trumpet and trombone, Doug Robinson on guitar, and special guests.
