The village of Bergen has a small downtown with a few shops, a well-known pizzeria, and other places to eat. For a greater variety of shopping, residents head to Brockport, which is only nine miles north, or to Batavia, a quick 14-mile trek southwest. Both have supermarkets (Wegmans in Brockport, Top’s in Batavia), and large retailers like Walmart. The village offers lower-cost municipal electricity..
The Byron-Bergen Central School District serves residents here and in the neighboring town of Byron. The closest hospitals also are in Brockport (Lakeside Memorial) and Batavia (United Memorial Medical Center). The Byron Bergen Public Library, covering both communities, is on Lake Road in Bergen. The Newman Riga Library is just east of Bergen in Churchville. The Bergen Post Office is on Rochester Street.
