About Us:  Our History and Mission

The Falmouth ArtMarket, which was established in 2007, was the brainchild of Marty Tulloch. Marty, a retired school teacher, headed the Falmouth Arts Council for many years. Having always had a passion for supporting local artists and musicians, his goal in creating the Falmouth ArtMarket was to give local artists an affordable venue for selling and advertising their work to both residents and visitors. 

Marty was active in a wide range of arts and cultural groups. He sang with the New Bedford Shanty Chorus and the Greater Falmouth Mostly All-Male Men's Chorus (now the Falmouth Community Chorus). He was active with the Falmouth Cultural Council, Woods Hole Folk Music Society, Schooner Ernestina, the Cape and Islands Orchid Society, and Neighborhood Falmouth. He died in 2014.

The Falmouth ArtMarket was initially located at Falmouth Town Hall Square, then moved to Gus Canty Community Hall. It now takes place at Falmouth Marine Park, 180 Scranton Avenue, on Falmouth Harbor, every Thursday in June, July, and August, from noon to 5 PM, with musical entertainment from 2 to 4 PM.

Vendor fees have been kept low to encourage participation in the market. Fees support the ArtMarket and its musicians, as well as the work of the Falmouth Cultural Council.
