When you’re in the mood to create your own culinary masterpiece in your very own gourmet master chef’s kitchen, you’ll want the region’s biggest farmer’s market to be within walking distance of your new luxury School Loft or Town Home to get the perfect ingredients. Walk, jog, or bike off that meal on your choice of endless paths and trails and relax on an oasis of parkland including the magical 13-hectare Fairy Lake park, located just steps from your front door.
Steeped in history, Newmarket’s historic downtown is rich with contemporary culture featuring a multitude of festivals and family-friendly events year round to entice the kids and grandkids to visit.
