Discover the Village of Florida, New York

Welcome to Florida sign

Florida has that charming, quintessential small town feel. Located in the Town of Warwick, this quaint Village is part of the Black Dirt Region. Florida began as a farming community when settled by immigrants in the early 1700’s. It was soon discovered that the rich, black soil was perfect for growing onions, which are still the main crop of the region.

Stroll down Main Street and find an assortment of restaurants, stores and businesses. For those who like craft beer, check out Glenmere Brewing Company, and make sure you check out their website for their events. Some businesses are new, and some have been there for a long time.  For example, Werner’s Ace Hardware has been family-owned for over 100 years and is a staple of the community.  The local farmers market is open on Tuesdays from mid-June to the end of October.  And it’s truly local, with all produce coming from Florida’s black dirt farms and Chester Agricultural Center. Further, like most small towns, there is a sense of community. Every year, on the second Sunday in August, it’s Family Fun Fest Day! With a 5K race, free rides and local vendors and craftspeople, this is a day for everyone to enjoy. 

Village Notables
