Newmarket Farmers Market


farmersmarketnewsmaOpen every Saturday, 8 am. – 1 pm

May until October

Every Saturday Morning from the first weekend in May to the last weekend in October, a band of farmers, vendors and volunteers create a hive of activity reminiscent of the town’s early years as a new market. A place to buy farm fresh produce, home-made baking, hand-made crafts and a great place to meet up with friends over breakfast or lunch.


Our History

Founded in 1999 as a revitalization initiative for Newmarket Historic Downtown, the market has thrived over the past 11 years as these facts will attest:

  • average 40+ vendors throughout the season
  • $300,000+ gross for the market last season
  • average over 800 shoppers per day
  • we are a regulated Farmers’ Market

This success is due to the many reasons we give shoppers to come to the market. Every week shoppers have the opportunity of filling out a ballot for the chance to win a bushel of free produce and crafts (no purchase necessary), every vendor donates an item. Retail value approx. $170.

We also have Master Gardeners on hand all season long to answer gardening questions. We have a regular nutritionist available at the Market Association tent to answer questions. We have vendors who sell heirloom beets, tomatoes and carrots.

We feature a community service tent used by a roster of local groups and special events.

We are located East of Main Street in the new Riverwalk Commons Newmarket.
