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.

The Katbird Shop

Welcome! The Katbird Shop is located just a short walk from the Moon and River cafe, City Hall, Jay Street, and Proctors Theatre.

We are two shops in one: the main room with the new - fine American art & crafts. The backrooms & basement house the old - 8 rooms of antiques & collectibles.

History buffs will enjoy visiting us; Chester Arthur, the 21st U.S. president, lived here before attending Union College.

Bicycling:

He neither drank, smoked, nor rode a bicycle. Living frugally, saving his money, he died early, surrounded by greedy relatives. It was a great lesson to me.
