Main Street Markham


Main Street Markham is one of the most fascinating communities of the City of Markham. Here you can explore the past and, at the same time, enjoy the many flourishing shops, restaurants and pubs that line the historic main street. 

Situated on Markham Road (Highway 48) north of Highway 7, Main Street Markham continues in the footsteps of the original Markham village which was founded two centuries ago.

As people settled in the newly surveyed Township of Markham, villages began to develop. In 1805, the north-east corner of Highway 48 and Highway 7 was sold to Joseph Reesor, one of a large number of Pennsylvania-Germans who were to make this area their home. Originally called Reesorville, the ‘corner’ was renamed the village of Markham and grew in size and status to eventually become a unique and vibrant community within the modern City of Markham. Main Street was the hub of activity for the village, a bustling street with a blend of businesses and services. 

Today’s Markham Village retains its small-town charm with many of its original buildings and homes still gracing the street. On Main Street Markham there is something for everyone to enjoy, such as shopping at a wide range of unique shops and boutiques for gifts, crafts, glassware and household items, books, flowers, fashionable clothing and much more. A variety of cuisines are to be savoured in the many restaurants, grills, pubs, and bakeries. A host of commercial and professional services are to be found as well, from hair salons to lawyers, doctors and dentists. 

Adding to the eye-pleasing aspect of Main Street Markham, from early summer to late fall, the light standards are enhanced with hanging baskets overflowing in beautiful blossoming plants, and wooden half-barrels planted in colourful flowers and trees adorn the street. Main Street Markham contributed to the City of Markham’s winning of the provincial Communities in Bloom contest in 1996 and again in 2005. The City of Markham went on to win the international competition in 1998. Communities in Bloom is a friendly competition that recognizes community participation in landscape beautification, heritage and cultural preservation and environmental awareness. 

In recent times, the Markham Village Business Improvement Area adopted the Canada Goose as the mascot for Main Street Markham. It was a fitting choice and has become a widely recognized symbol of Main Street Markham, its business community and its neighbourhood. Main Street Markham is on a migratory path and local residents often witness how Canada Geese work as a team. While flying in formation the lead goose changes regularly, to share the burden. It is because of these values of loyalty, steadfastness, hard work, and teamwork that the business people of Main Street Markham have adopted the noble Canada Goose as their mascot.
