Request for Community Images at Ithaca Farmers Market for their 50th Celebration!

2023 marks the 50th Anniversary of the Ithaca Farmers Market (IFM)! The Market is planning to showcase their history in photos, to recognize  our vendors and their years at market, and thank the community for their support over the decades. IFM has enjoyed a strong and loyal customer base that has helped vendors grow their farms and businesses and has made IFM one of the top markets in the state and one of the area's top tourism destinations.  

To document this history, they are looking for Ithaca Market photos from the past through the present time.  We are planning to use photos in a variety of ways - to display at market, in our new cookbook, and in exhibits and permanent collections at The History Center and other locations later in the year.  

Photographers Robyn Wishna and Allison Usavage have volunteered to curate the photo exhibit for the market to help us celebrate our 50th Anniversary. They have lots of great ideas for ways to showcase our market history, but we need your old Market photos to do it! 

Look for pictures of you and your family shopping at any of our market locations, pictures of our vendors or their products, people enjoying lunch and the waterfront location, artisan creations, and photos of any of the events we’ve hosted over the years including the Rutabaga Curl!   

If you would like to share your photos of the Ithaca Farmers Market over the years, you can upload them to our easy online form here:

You can also email Monika Roth (, President of Friends of the Ithaca Farmers Market, to set up a time to drop them off in person (we will scan them and get them back to you). 

Thank you for taking a look through your photo albums and collections!
