2018 will be the market's 28th year!

The Ithaca Artist Market fills all 88 booths at the Ithaca Farmers Market with regional fine and functional artists in a unique, once-a-year, can't miss event.

Over 80 established visual artists have been juried into the Market to showcase and sell a stunning variety of some of the best fine art in the region.

Local arts organizations will also have booths along with plenty of food and dessert vendors. King Ferry Winery/Treleaven Wines will be on hand with wine by the glass, and Baccus Brewery will be serving craft beer.

Market goers can enjoy the East Hill Jazz Group, who will set the mood with classic jazz (with Johnny Russo on trumpet and trombone, Doug Robinson on guitar, London McDaniels on bass, and special guests). Ithaca Boat Tours will have some cruises leaving from the dock!

Admission is free, and visitors to the market have the unique opportunity to meet and talk with all these artists in one place and to buy work of all shapes, sizes, and disciplines, to include: paintings, prints, sculpture, fine furniture, collage, photographs, jewelry, stained glass, fused glass, ceramics, children’s books, fiber art, stone carvings and artist books. Prices range from $5 to $1,500 (something for everyone!).

"This is an amazing annual event," says Robin Schwartz, Program Director of the Community Arts Partnership, who has been running the Artist Market for 24 years. "The Farmers Market's open air structure on Cayuga Lake's inlet is beautiful. Music will be playing, there's plenty of food and wine and beer, and visitors can take their time meeting and looking at the artwork of over 85 artists, all carefully juried into the show. The local artist talent we have in Tompkins County is truly outstanding.”

Location: The Market is held at the Ithaca Farmer's Market, off Route 13 at Third Street, (turn at the corner of Aldi and B&W Supply.) If using GPS, use 545 Third Street, Ithaca NY 14850. More info about the location or directions is at www.ithacamarket.com

Parking: The Market has lots of parking, and we'll have parking attendents helping direct you.  There's some extra parking this year - as you turn off Route 13 (between Aldi and B&W Supply) and before you cross over the railroad track, there's some fields where you can park! 

About the Community Arts Partnership (CAP): Visitors may already be familiar with the Community Arts Partnership’s events that include the Artist Market, the Greater Ithaca Art Trail, the Spring Writes Literary Festival, and the CAP ArtSpace. In addition to connecting artists and audiences, CAP offers artist networking events, and administers six art grant programs for local artists and not-for- profits. You are on our website!
