About

Ithaca Farmers Market is a wedding venue in Ithaca, New York. The market is a well-known icon in the Finger Lakes area. The pavilion at the Ithaca Farmers Market is a wooden structure with high ceilings and string lights.

Facilities and Capacity

There are 88 unique booths to set up your bar, DJ, food, cake and more. The pavilion is an open-air structure and can accommodate up to 300 guests. You can take advantage of the outdoor ceremony spot on the edge of Cayuga Lake and then move to the covered area for your sit-down dinner and dancing.

Services Offered

The rustic pavilion is a blank slate to decorate with your own color scheme and wedding style. They provide three indoor bathrooms, one of which is ADA accessible, and also have a restroom trailer for larger events. You must book one of their "preferred caterers," but all other vendors are the couple's choice. They also suggest involving vendors that sell at the actual market to make your event feel even more "Ithaca." There is an events coordinator on staff to help guide you through the planning process. The market can host your engagement party, bridal shower, rehearsal dinner, elopement, ceremony and reception.

History

Ithaca Farmers Market is a vendor-run cooperative with about 150 different businesses, started in 1973. You can find fruits, vegetables, meats, eggs, dairy products, prepared foods and artisanal gifts. The market was built by volunteers to turn the former debris site into a thriving community gathering area. All items sold at the market must be grown or made within a 30-mile radius of the pavilion.

Perfect Wedding at the Perfect Venue

Having grown up in Ithaca, attending the Farmers Market my entire life, it was a no-brainer choosing it as the venue for our fall wedding. The event coordinator was lovely to work with, answering any and all questions we had during the planning process. As soon as the market was closed for the day, their entire team was out cleaning and getting it ready for our vendors. We did very minor decorating, as the market speaks for itself. What decorating we did do was placed in different vendor booths, which helped create little different "areas" for our guests to visit. We received endless compliments from our guests about the space. Getting married surrounded by the water and changing colors was magical. My wife and I cannot say enough good things about our experience getting married at the Ithaca Farmers Market. Highly recommend!

A Magical Venue!

It was a no-brainer to have our wedding at the Ithaca Farmers Market. It's a very meaningful place for us and made for a magical celebration of our love. Our ceremony was incredibly picturesque - with the backdrop of Cayuga Lake, met with the setting sun and a hot air balloon that happened to be floating past. Then moving in to the farmers market for the reception was seamless. We decorated a few of the booths with "exhibits" of our relationship, a photo booth, a game booth, a guest book/polaroid booth and used the Luna Food Truck which all worked splendidly and looked beautiful. The market ends at 3pm and the setup crew/vendors can start setting up at 4pm. We had our ceremony start at 6pm (which was a bit ambitious with the amount of decorations we had) with the reception ending at 11/11:30pm.
Jordan, the event director, was very responsive and a pleasure to work with. A half hour before the ceremony, we noticed high schoolers arriving to take prom photos on the lake by the market while we were finishing setting up and I was able to get on the phone with Jordan to resolve the issue. She worked very well with our catering team and I didn't have to worry about anything else for the rest of the evening. There is a bike path that runs through the ceremony area and sandwich boards are placed on either side to keep people from coming through, which worked fairly well during the ceremony, but didn't stop some bikers - it is a public park after all.
The next morning we had our guests meet us at the market for a "farewell stroll" and it was so cool to show everyone the market in it's operational state. Highly recommend doing this!!
Overall, the market is the perfect spot for a wedding! I'm so thrilled we were able to have it at this enchanting venue! Huge thanks to Jordan and the market team for making this the best day ever

Magical Wedding

We were so excited to get married at the Farmer's Market! The night was absolutely magical, and we didn't feel like we needed any more decoration than the string lights they have up. We had around 160 people at our wedding and the space didn't feel too big or too small. The weather is definitely a risk we had to take, but we got lucky and it was gorgeous! The staff at the market was great and answered all of our questions! Their recommendations for other vendors was spot on and we had a great team that made our day so absolutely magical.
