Farmington residents enjoy upscale amenities, quaint architecture and an ever-improving downtown. At the heart of Farmington sits the Civic Theatre, a landmark old-fashioned movie house that still operates. The city already boasts strong community with festivals, a lively farmer's market and great parks. Plus it plans to aggressively expand its greenspaces downtown, making it even more pedestrian-friendly.

Farmington will be the focus of the next On the Ground series as Metromode will partner with the Farmington Downtown Development Authority (Farmington DDA) and a coalition of community stakeholders to identify and capture the story of talent, investment, innovation and emerging assets that are shaping the future of Farmington.
