Welcome to Farmington, NY


Farmington is a town of about 12,000 residents in northern Ontario County, bordered to the north by Macedon (Wayne County), to the east by Manchester, to the south by Canandaigua, and to the west by Victor. Farmington is a fast-growing community best known as the home of Finger Lakes Casino & Racetrack, which offers thoroughbred racing and more than 1,000 slot machines.


For grocery shopping, Farmington has its own supermarket, Wade’s Market Center on Route 96. The closest Wegmans supermarkets are on Eastern Boulevard (Routes 5 & 20) in Canandaigua, about 13 miles north; and in Newark (Wayne County), about 15 miles northeast. Top’s Friendly Markets also has a grocery store in Canandaigua, at 5150 North St. at Route 332. For retail shopping, Eastview Mall and the surrounding area in Victor have plenty of shopping options. Eastview is one of the largest and perhaps the most upscale mall in the region. Just next door to or across the road from the mall you’ll find other stores such as Kmart, Target and BJ’s Wholesale Club. The Ontario Antiques Mall Co-Op on Route 332 is a huge indoor flea market complex..

Recreation & Entertainment

The biggest show in town is the Finger Lakes Casino & Racetrack, which attracts people from throughout the Greater Rochester area. Along with thoroughbred racing and slot machines, the place hosts live concerts and other events.

Transportation & Traffic

The New York State Thruway has an exit-entrance in Farmington. Route 96 is a busy east-west thoroughfare, and Route 332 is a north-south highway that takes you into Canandaigua.

Pros & Cons

Farmington is fast-growing, but still maintains a mostly agricultural feel. Farmington is between busy Victor and historic Canandaigua, and is a gateway of sorts to the western Finger Lakes. The racetrack and casino are often crowded with patrons from throughout the area. Traffic is not as heavy in Farmington as it is in nearby Victor.
