Ithaca Artist Market
Greetings Artist Market applicants!
The 2020 Market date is in question until further notice. We do not yet know if we can gather in large groups this summer. I suspect we will not be able to, in which case I would love to postpone this event to the fall, or even indoors in the winter.
It's just too early to make the call now.
FEEL free to apply now. You will not need to pay until we know whether this event can happen.
See it live. Buy it local.
Friday, July 31, 2020, noon to 8pm
at the Ithaca Farmers Market
Rain or Shine!

The 2020 Market
The Ithaca Artist Market is a joint venture of the Community Arts Partnership and the Ithaca Farmers Market! Thank you Ithaca Farmers Market!
2020 will be the Ithaca Artist Market's 30th year! We fill all 88 booths at the Ithaca Farmers Market with regional fine and functional visual artists (and some authors) in a unique, once-a-year, can't miss event.
Over 75 established visual artists (and some authors) have been juried into the Market to showcase and sell a stunning variety of some of the best fine art in the region. See the list of artists below from 2019.
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 their craft beer truck!
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).
A Free Raffle will be at booth 44 (CAP sharing the the Visitor Center) for hourly drawings: Cayuga Chamber Orchestra tickets, Cinemapolis tickets, $25 Farmers Market gift certificates, and as-yet-to-be-determined sway from the Visitor Center gift shop.
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 AND FUN annual event," says Robin Schwartz, Program Director of the Community Arts Partnership, who has been running the Artist Market for 27 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 the artists and looking at the artwork and hopefully finding lots of art to love and to purchase! The local artist talent we have in Tompkins County is truly outstanding.”
