Calendar

Events are what sets our market apart and altogether tells a story of Farmington - A community steeped in tradition with a history as welcoming, festive and oh so family friendly. Whether it's singing our national anthem on opening day, enjoying an old fashioned corn roast, ringing in the fall harvest season or scaring up a "ghoul time" at The Haunted Market, we are truly a market for all ages and a must do weekend destination!
