It is part of Greater Toronto in the Golden Horseshoe region of Southern Ontario.

There are two reservoirs in Newmarket; Fairy Lake (which is managed by the Lake Simcoe Region Conservation Authority), a favourite recreational area in the centre of town, is a former mill pond on the East Holland River; and Bogart Pond, also a former mill pond, is fed and drained by Bogart Creek in Bogarttown.

Furthermore, the water level in the reach of the East Holland north of Davis Drive is controlled from an unfinished Newmarket Canal lock, now used as a weir.

During the War of 1812 a resident, William Roe, was able to successfully hide gold that was in the settlement's treasury, saving it from invading American troops.

The war also helped bring some prosperity as the army purchased goods and food and hired locals to build structures.

Newmarket also lies south of and above the Algonquin Shoreline, where elevations suddenly drop off from the gently rolling hills that characterize much of Newmarket to the much flatter, lower land down below in the Holland Marsh.

The land is characterized mainly by glacial deposits from the last ice age, known as "Newmarket Till".

A mill was first and other businesses (including a distillery) soon followed.

Mordecai Millar also built mills and Joseph Hill opened a tannery.

A more widely used route ran down the western branch of the Holland River, over the moraine, and down the Humber River.

In 1793, John Graves Simcoe travelled the trail, northward along the main route to the west, and south to York (now Toronto) along the lesser used eastern route though Newmarket.

Some of the United States Quakers were interested in moving northward, disturbed by the violence they were expected to take part in during the American Revolution.
