  • A very unique farmers market, real down home country, beautifully rustic setting, clean and friendly, great looking displays. A wonderful unexpected find! 
  • A unique setting with little bit of everything! Delicious fruit, veggies, wine tasting, breads, pastries, and a variety of different types of food to sample. Oh, and live music! Don't miss it! 
  • It was so quiet. I was hoping to see more store. Maybe it was the end of the season...? I could've found a local store by myself driving around finger lakes. Or I would recommend going Amish grocery s...  more »

  • I love this farmers market. It's right on the lake so the setting is beautiful in any season. They have excellent prepared foods especially the Cambodian stall. They make a Khmer pancake which is a turmeric rice pancake filled with your choice of chicken or pork, rice noodles, bean sprouts, and topped with a spicy sweet sauce. We also had a pizza with an impossibly thin and crispy crust. Ours had Asiago and garlic and sausage on it. It was delicious! There's bakeries, and other prepared foods like Tibetan food and macrobiotic food. So many choices! There's all sorts of crafts and local produce for sale. It's covered, so it's comfortable to go shopping there in the summertime. In the summer, you can take a boat ride on the lake from the pier near the market.
  • The best farmers market I've ever been too. Fresh ethnic food cooked while you wait, have lunch on the waters edge. People watch. Crafters booths have unique arts craft items, definitely not the typical tomatoes zucchini stands. Plants in bloom for sale. Hand made precious gems jewelry handmade clothing too. Absolutely fell in love with this market on steamboat landing & its across from the science center! I could make an entire day of this. 😊
  • A great market, venue, everything. It can be packed on nice days (from May thru December) and is also a great place to walk around on the inlet. It connects to the Waterfront Trail, is accessible for all people, and has clean bathrooms and an ATM (those things are only available when the market is open or an event is happening, though).
  • Probably the best thing to do in all of Ithaca. A lot more than fresh produce - though they have a ton of that too. Local wines, a lot of hot food stands (Thai, Tibetan, Cambodian....), a few fresh cheeses, several bakeries with solid bread and even better pastries, and some handmade kitchen wares. Parking is a bit of a nightmare, but at least once you're done shopping you can have a picnic on the river side.
  • Been here maybe half dozen times with people that are very enthusiastic about it. It's definitely pure Ithaca. Good food options and a great view.
