Flea Market Shopping
Built along ancient First Nations trade routes, the town of Newmarket was founded in 1801 as a Quaker settlement.

Originally a fur trading post, “New” Market was the largest farmer’s market in the area, and quickly became a centre for agriculture, commerce and small industry.

Newmarket was also the heart of the Upper Canada Rebellion in 1837 and many local area residents marched on Toronto.

The Town of Newmarket is rich in history, evident in the bustling historical downtown area, home to locally and independently owned shops, businesses and restaurants

  • the kids loved the big wading pool. We loved that it wasn't deep at all.
  • Fun for the whole family. Always good to support your local businesses
  • Small but nice. Lots of vegetables, some specialty stands. Tasty pizza made fresh (it's a portable wood burning pizza oven). Has a large wading pool with chairs and live music. Also a short walk from Newmarket's 'historical' street with lots of little restaurants. What with a large park near by and all, there is a surprising lack of ice-cream shops to cater to the summer crowds.
  • Great market, the only improvement it could use is if the vendors had credit card options as the BMO bank is no longer there and a lot of people don't carry cash.
  • Tons of fresh food, come here for breakfast or a snack or just grocery shopping! They have everything from Pizza to Beef Patties to Celery
