The town of Newmarket, with a population of approximately 65,750, is located 45 km north of Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The main river in Newmarket is the East Holland River which flows north, draining into Lake Simcoe. The direction of the river's flow is due to the fact that the town lies north of the Oak Ridges Moraine. The river system was originally slated to become an inland port and locks were built on the river but the plan was cancelled in the early part of the 20th Century.
Newmarket is characterized by hills and then the land drops off suddenly, as you head northward into the Holland Marsh. The town lies just south of the Algonquin Shoreline which means it was on the edge of the proglacial lake of the same name from the last ice age. As such the land was formed from glacial deposits made as the ice retreated. These deposits of sand and gravel however are not readily visible here, as they are too deeply buried.
The town was first settled in 1801 by Quakers. In 1908, Pickering College moved here and is a Quaker founded independent school. The name of the town came from the great number of goods produced by the local mills and was dubbed the "New Market" vs. the "Old Market" which was Toronto.
Today, Newmarket is in a suburban growth phase which is fueled primarily by the need for affordable housing for Toronto workers. Famous people who came from or live in Newmarket apparently include: Ben Johnson, Jim Carrey, members of the rock band Glass Tiger, Elvis Stojko, and Jamie Macoun.
Newmarket has a relatively smaller population relative to places like Hamilton or Winnipeg which can be a good thing when it comes to vehicle insurance. Insurance companies say that when there are fewer drivers, often, there are fewer accidents. This can mean lower car insurance premiums relative to larger centers.
