We ventured off of busy Jefferson Road and were delighted to find this pretty spot. There are some shops and restaurants, and the pace is nicely low key and laid back. Good place to park the car and stroll along the canal side for a...More

Northfield Common is a fabulous and truly unique gem just outside of Rochester, NY. The shops are wonderful and independently owned and the location cannot be beat. Right along the Erie Canal, you can go on your own unique adventure checking out all the shops,...More

Northfield Common is a fun and very different kind of shopping experience. You won't find a single chain store or "big box" store in this quaint area. Instead, it is filled with little specialty shops that line the area around the Erie Canal. Many of...More
