The New Market General Store, located in the heart of New Market's "Antique Mile," was built in 1881 by Silas Kelly Utz and maintains today the charm and character of a 19th century mercantile.

Originally built to serve travelers heading out West through New Market along the National Pike, the building has served in many capacities over its 100+ years of use: from the original general store and trading post to a millinery, butcher shop, grocery store, one-chair barber shop, bus station, toy store and the town's post office.

Kristen Travers, Proprietor has sought to preserve a bit of Silas Utz's 1881 General Store's charm for today's travelers and shoppers.

From furniture, Maryland souvenirs, antiques and penny candies to delicious food and drink from The Cafe featuring Mom's Pizza & Grill, featuring a great selection of pizzas as well as sandwiches, subs, salads and appetizers. The General Store in New Market, Maryland is a timeless work in progress: 100+ years and counting.

Start your day with a cup of coffee from the Dublin Roasters Coffee Company, something to eat and find out what’s going on in town.

OUR COMMUNITY

New Market traces it's history back to the early horse and buggy days of the late 18th century. Founded in 1793 by Nicholas Hall and William Plummer: New Market's location along the historic National Pike made it a convenient stop for travelers in need of food, lodging, and services. The high-wheeled, six horse, Conestoga wagons were frequent visitors on their way to the Ohio Country and beyond. The eight hotels and taverns lining Main Street provided travelers with a night's lodging for 25 cents and a glass of whiskey for 5 cents.

Today's travelers, adventurers, and antique collectors are welcomed by a Bed & Breakfast Country Inn, fine eating establishments, and more than 30 antique shops. Registered by the State of Maryland and by the Department of Interior's National Register as an historic district, New Market includes the founders' original plot laid out two full centuries ago. The Old National Pike through New Market has also recently been granted the classification as a “Linear national Park.”

SOME OF OUR CATEGORIES OF PRODUCTS

Byers’ Choice Carolers

In the late 1960's, Joyce Byers started making what has come to be known as Byers' Choice Carolers out of her desire to create holiday decorations that showed a respect for timeless traditions and her own memories of Christmas. Now a family business, Joyce, her husband Bob and their two sons work with their team of 180 trained artisans to create each Byers' Choice Caroler with a unique appearance and handcrafted quality. Located in Pennsylvania, the Byers' family continues to handcraft those same creations that started out on the dining room table many years ago.

Every Caroler is created in the Pennsylvania workshop by the loving hands of a team of skilled artisans. Although Joyce still designs each Caroler, it is the following steps which bring to life the figures that have found their way into people's hearts.

You will be dazzled by the display of Carolers at the New Market General Store.

“No two carolers are ever the same. Our artisans create a unique character and personality in each figure by using a variety of techniques and materials. Each crafter leaves a little bit of him- or her-self in every figure touched. As many as ten people will work on each Caroler. Consequently, it is almost impossible to find two Carolers that are exactly alike.”
~Joyce Byers

 


Merck Family’s
Old World Christmas

The New Market General Store brings you a wonderful selection of authentic handcrafted glass ornaments of unsurpassed beauty, quality and value from the Merck Family’s Old World Christmas. Carefully hand-produced in limited quantities, each of these exclusive and dazzling collectibles is a treasure for you to cherish as a favorite part of your Christmas celebrations and traditions.

Thanks to the dedication of the Merck Family’s Old World Christmas, the century-old art of creating glass Christmas ornaments has been revived. Each beautiful glass ornament is tediously mouth-blown, one at a time, into a finely crafted porcelain mold. Once the ornament has been removed from the mold and cooled, a hot solution of liquid silver is poured inside.

Then the ornament is delicately hand-painted with many brightly colored lacquers. Finally, the long stem is cut and the cap is attached. An heirloom is born!

The Merck Family’s Old World Christmas is your guarantee of authentic glass ornaments. Extraordinary attention to every detail results in the remarkable quality of these ornaments. Each ornament is produced in limited numbers exclusively for the Merck Family’s Old World Christmas.

Willow Tree Angels

Bean Pod Soy Candles

If you're looking for fresh and exciting fragrances to enhance your home or office, and you appreciate quality and long-lasting value, you've found the perfect line of candles.

Our Beanpod Candles™ are made right here in America's Heartland from 100% stabilized soy wax, which provides a long and clean-burning candle that will retain its vibrant fragrance and brilliant color. Most soy candles are actually a blend of soy wax and paraffin (sometimes as much as 75% paraffin), which can discolor and lose fragrance over time. You will notice the difference of Beanpod Candles™ from the moment you light one.

We provide a wide (and constantly growing) assortment of more than 70 fragrances. When you see the Real Soy logo on our labels, it is a symbol that you are purchasing the highest quality soy candle available on the market today.

Reproduction Primative Furniture From
Keystone Country Furniture out of Lancaster County Pennsylvania and
The Olde Look - Handmade and Handforged out of York

“Keystone Country Furniture” is hand made in our shop in Adams County, Pennsylvania. Each piece is individually hand-crafted of random width kiln-dried eastern white pine. We strive to achieve the appearance of the early primitive Shaker and Country styles. We use wide planks as were used then, but our construction method allows natural movement of the wood to occur without causing excessive checking and damage. Expansion and contraction of the wood is normal and expected. As in the original furniture of the period, naturally occurring knots and faults are left in the wood to preserve the authentic appearance. This is part of the uniqueness of the collection and gives each piece its own character. Keystone Country Furniture is durable and built to last for generations with no special care. It may be washed with mild soap and water or waxed occasionally with a good quality furniture polish or wax. Every piece of original “keystone country furniture” is signed and dated… Pieces available include Bedrooms, Bookcases, Chairs, Dining Rooms/Kitchens, Home Office, Living Room/Den, Miscellaneous and Tables
