Picture of Richard Genest

Richard Genest, the proprietor of the Market and the Cafe, operated the famous and former "Mother Earth's Cafe" in Albany, after moving from Ithaca, where he had founded the ABC Cafe over 30 years ago. He also ran Arthurs for under a year around 2006, enjoying similar success as the market currently enjoys.



Everyone is welcome at the market. All are encouraged to give appropriate gratuities to the performers, who work only for tips.

Good to Know

"In the beginning of a change, the patriot is a scarce man, and brave, and hated and scorned. When his cause succeeds, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot."
