New Market Reviews

New Market is a progressive town in Frederick county. It is a prominently white neighborhood but they are very respectful and accepting of your cultural background. The schools focus on education and they host fun event throughout the year. High school children maybe influenced by drugs and alcohol, so I will advise you to keep tab on your kids. The school and other student prepare your kids for college and other paths they want to take.
There are many jobs for teens that are close by and pay good wages.
There a lot of real estate opportunities due to the building of new houses and developments.
we don't focus on politics, so you won't feel offended based on political standing. Religion is not really discussed, but there are many church around for people of all religions.
Some neighborhood have beautiful small lakes or beaches and nature is seen everywhere.

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.
