Each year the Artists' Market fills all 88 booths at the Farmers Market location in a unique, once-a-year, can't miss event.
Over 60 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, about 15 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, chocolate and wine. Music sets the mood all day long with local musicians Johnny Russo, on trumpet and trombone, Doug Robinson on guitar, Brian Earle on clarinet and London McDaniels on bass.

Artist Applications will be on this site by May of 2014. The market is primarily for Tompkins County artists, but there is always room for out-of-county artists, especially if they represent a discipline that is not already represented. Our goal is to provide the public with a varied show as well as giving local artist the opportunity to sell.
