August 2012 Newsletter

Welcome to Newmarket Mills  
Business Feature:

In the last newsletter we featured Poppers at the Mill, the farm-to-table restaurant that has been receiving rave reviews.  We have recently celebrated the grand opening of the Bloom'n Cow, adding a decidedly sweet dimension to the Mill experience. The Bloom'n Cow offers ice cream, gelato, baked goods, coffee and tea. Stop in to the ground level creamery and begin working your way through the menu of traditional and exotic frozen goods. 

Have a recent move, heavy briefcase, and summer activities caused you to feel out of alignment? Dr. Michael Card has moved his chiropractic practice to the 3rd floor of the Mill, conveniently located across from the Cafe space in Suite 316. Card Chiropractic Care is focused on delivering quality, personalized treatment to help patients achieve their full potential of health. Dr. Card attended Palmer Chiropractic College where he focused on preventive care and patient education.  Treatments are centered towards patient comfort, and are a blend of conventional chiropractic with soft tissue and myofascial therapies. He treats a full spectrum of patients from athletes to expecting mothers.  

To learn about Dr. Card's practice and approach please visit his blog

There are still a few commercial spaces available. To join the Newmarket Mills business community please contact Brint Shone at (603)749-3355.

Upcoming Events:
Newmarket Olde Home Day and Oyster Festival
Saturday, August 11, 2012, 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., rain or shine
Location: Main Street + Water Street, Newmarket NH  (Accessible from Rt. 4 through Durham or Rt. 33 from Exeter). Free Parking in the Municipal lot adjacent to the Public Library, 1 Elm Street, Newmarket NH.
The Olde Home Day & Oyster Festival is a toast to Newmarket's historic mill town roots and rejuvenation of its downtown village and waterfront, which boast a variety of unique shops, art studios, cafes and restaurants.

The Oyster Festival is a part of a local education and awareness effort, along with the Nature Conservancy of New Hampshire, University of New Hampshire, Piscataqua Region Estuaries Partnership and others, to restore native oyster populations in the Great Bay Estuary. Oysters are not only good to eat, they provide important benefits to the estuary for filtering pollutants and creating habitat for fish. We have lost more than 90% of our oysters, but local aquaculture and efforts to rebuild reefs- one acre at a time using recycled shell- are helping to turn the tide!

15th Annual Newmarket Heritage Festival
Saturday September 22, 2012, 10 a.m. to 9:00 p.m.
The Newmarket Heritage Festival is the Seacoast's favorite international block party and you're invited! An event packed full of music and dance, arts and history, food and fun. Adults: $7; children: $3 (ages 6-12); under 6, free. Admission covers all performances and events (excluding select activities). Come and join the party!

Phase II Apartment Update:

August 1st was moving day for many of the residents at 7 Penstock Way (or the L&M waterfront buildings)!  Temps were high into the 80s and 90s but folks cooled off in the comfort of their air-conditioned apartments and enjoyed move in celebrations at the end of the day. The final round of move ins is slated for September 1st at 5 Penstock Way (or the K Building live/work spaces). All of the 112 apartments have been leased and come September there will be 150 residents living in the Mills.


There is still space available for lease at the Newmarket Mills marina. Enjoy the remaining days of summer and the beautiful New Hampshire autumn on the Lamprey River. Please contact Jared Trayer for more information about a pro-rated lease for your boat slip.
