New Market Reviews

New Market is packed with hundreds of amazing restaurants and small businesses. There is a place for everybody! It has a strong sense of community, and everyone in the area simply feels at home. The only downside is the fast rate of development, as there is construction everywhere you look. However, there is always something to do in this diverse area, and everything feels very safe.

I have lived in New Market for 15 years. We were originally drawn to its small-town historic charm and the Main Street full of quaint antique shops, which it was then known for. Since then, the McMansions of nearby Frederick have encroached on the area. Now, most of the antique shops have closed (many of them not being replaced by other businesses), and the surrounding countryside is full of cookie-cutter houses crammed as close together as possible. The down-to-earth residents are being replaced by the status-seeking commuters who can easily access DC from here, and the general feeling and attitude has changed. It's really sad, compared to the wonderful community that existed before. It's quiet, and safe, I'll give it that; but it's not where we want to be anymore.
Lake Linganore in New Market, MD is an awesome neighborhood. Over they summer, they will have a farmers market and will bring in live bands to play. They have also hosted Winter and Fall activities for the family. Neighbors are super friendly. We had met our immediate neighbors within the first week, without even trying. Schools are rated very high according to the real estate web site. I definitely recommend this area.
