Elko New Market is a growing community in the south metro combining a small town culture with big city convenience. Just 30 minutes south of Minneapolis and Saint Paul on Interstate 35, in southeastern Scott County, Elko New Market may be best known for Elko Speedway, a NASCAR-sanctioned track that hosts races every Saturday evening from May to October as well as other entertainment and live music for crowds of all ages. If that’s how you know our community, we encourage you to explore all that Elko New Market has to offer. We have great opportunities for golf, dining, small-town living and shopping, including the popular Traders Market that hosts antique / flea markets three times each summer. We are also home to Champions Drive-In Theater, one of the few drive-in movie theaters in the Twin Cities.

Easy access to employment opportunities, affordably priced real estate and newer housing, active community programming, tightly connected neighborhoods and excellent schools make Elko New Market an attractive choice for young families establishing themselves personally and professionally.
