Description: 

New Market is apparently a hamlet in Yoknapatawpha County where Gavin Stevens goes to a "supervisor's meeting on some more of the drainage canal business" (268). "Some more" seems to connect with an earlier reference to the "squabble over a drainage tax suit" (181) in Wyott's Crossing, so we have located New Market near that other location. But It does not appear in any other fiction, so we have no clear evidence as to where Faulkner imagined it to be.
