Who are we?

FARMINGTON BUSINESS ASSOCIATION

The Farmington Business Association is a non-profit business association dedicated to provide the residents of Farmington with a successful business environment, give back to the community through the planning and promotion of events within the city of Farmington, preserve and protect the historic Downtown area, and provide networking opportunities to our membership.

In a growing community like Farmington, the benefits of a historic downtown and overall vibrant business environment are an important ingredient. Convenient, local sources for the everyday products and services that are needed by the community provide for a lifestyle that is efficient not only financially, but also environmentally, and enables a higher quality of life for all members of the community.

Our members understand these benefits and are willing to work together to ensure the continued growth and prosperity of our downtown. We ask the public to keep our member businesses in mind and spend their dollars locally when possible. Please feel free to stop by, take a look around, and patronize our local businesses. We hope that you will enjoy the experience as much as we enjoy providing it to you!
