From those colonial times when the town of New Market in Frederick County was a rest stop for travelers going to the west, many things have changed, but its welcoming spirit remains until today. It is one of the safest communities in the country with low crime rates according to FBI data. It also stands out for its clean and charm neighborhoods with a privileged location about 40 miles from Baltimore and 50 miles from Washington DC, all perfectly balanced with a marvelous landscape.
The Historic District is listed in The National Register of Historic Places and it is known as “The Antiques Capital of Maryland” due to the numerous local stores that sell a wide array of antiques. The town also celebrates its past roots with two annual festivals that attract sizeable amounts of visitors. “A Day in New Market” held the first Saturday on May and “Christmas in New Market”, in December. As many visitors do after a shopping day, you can enjoy a superb nightlife in the neighbor city of Frederick just 10 miles away, which offers great restaurants and shops too.
You can also go to the nearby Catoctin Mountain Park to enjoy its magnificent mountains and discover by yourself why the famous presidential retreat “Camp David” is located here! Exceptional views and outdoor activities like horseback riding, hiking and biking can be practiced on its trails.
Nowadays, New Market is also focused in developing its future. Starting with its educational system, the New Market Elementary was named a Blue Ribbon School in 2016 due to its achievements in the past 5 years. Also, it was named as “Main Street Affiliate” in Maryland which will contribute with its plans to revitalize the downtown area to update it to modern times.
