Love the downtown shopping and activities during to whole year. I love the Farmer's market all summer long. There are a lot of resources for me to choose, from Doctors to clothing to eating in different venues to toy stores and hardware stores. I love being able to support the small business entrepreneur.

Farmington is a small-town feel with the convenience of being centered within the big city life. I always feel safe and secure, and love how friendly all of the people are!
Farmington has a very welcoming downtown. My favorite thing about the town is the farmers market every Saturday morning in the summer and fall. It creates a small-town atmosphere in which everyone is comfortable and welcome.
