> Is there a way to change the font for the axes tickmark labels?

Yes, you can do so with the option DefaultFont.

Below are two examples that appear in Chapter 1 of 
The Mathematica Graphics Guidebook (Addison-Wesley, 1994)
by Cameron Smith with Nancy Blachman.

Plot[Sin[x], {x, 0, 2Pi}, 
	DefaultFont -> {"Times-Italic", 8}

Plot[Sin[x], {x, 0, 2Pi}, 
	DefaultFont -> {"Symbol", 8},
