Ample parking, great variety, delicious food, and fair prices. Being on the shore of Cayuga Lake, the available cruise and beautiful scenery are bonuses. Most of what's for sale is either local, organically grown, or both. Bring your camera if you go, as it's just a pretty place, too.

This is a medium-sized Farmer's Market in my experience and has a wonderful selection of local produce, meat, honey, cider, etc. There are a few stands with crafts and plants too. We had a delicious lunch on the picnic benches outside. The annual Apple Festival was the same weekend and I think the Farmer's Market was far better in food,... More

We have been visiting the Ithaca Farmers Market for many years and it just keeps getting better. This time of year is a great time to visit with the many fall crops, cool weather, and probably rain. But it's all great fun.

The Farmers Market is at Steamboard Landing on weekends. Not easy to find and unpaved parking. But worth it. Plenty of vendors - farm fresh produce, prepared foods, and crafts. Food is of many ethnic varieties, including Cambodian, Sri Lankan, Cuban, Vietnamese, etc. Recently tried the pitas from the vendor at one end - really excellent. Entertainment includes various types... More

Went to the farmers market on a Sunday. Looked like all Ithaca was there. It is rather small, but a nice experience. Try the barbecued pizza and the blueberries cupcakes, all home made. You can plan 1-1:30 hrs for the spot.

You won't be disappointed. Great selection of fresh produce. Lots of lunch options. Find a spot on the dock to have lunch. Lovely few hours just wondering around the market, unique selection of vegetables, artisanal crafts. Products are local and goods are made from local resources. Great craftsmanship. Amazing bakery items. Love this place, hidden gem. Nothing to indicate from... More

Nice and diversed market. Great for locals on foot, boat or know the tricks on parking. Police have not figured how to direct traffic in and out. Took 40 minutes to get out of lot. Add that to 20 minute to get a spot and you can partially understand my score. Markets are everywhere now and this one is nice... More

If Baltimore's Inner Harbor were a farmer's market, it would look just like this, filled with culinary delights. We could stay forever.

and if you don't want organic goodness, there's incredible people watching, a boat trip on the lake, music of all sorts, jewelry, pottery, woodworking and textiles. Oh My. But the best thing, I think is the people watching

Better to call this place a local atrisans market, artisan food and crafts. Must try the cambodian lunch, after you have had the breakfast burrito ( look for the long line of locals) :-) Most products are organic with eye towards sustainable farming/living etc... Modern day hippies who know how to make handmade products that rival standard at reasonable prices.
