Artist Market Fees

2018 will be the market's 28th year! The Ithaca Artist Market fills all 88 booths at the Ithaca Farmers Market with regional fine artists in a unique, once-a-year, can't miss event. Over 85 established visual artists will be 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 Bandwagon Brewpub 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, and special guests to be announced). We'll also have artist Barbara Ann Jordan doing Body Art & Face Painting for all ages! 

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.”

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.
