National Association of British Market Authorities
As the country’s leading markets organisation NABMA, The National Association of British Market Authorities, has successfully promoted the interests of its local members for over 80 years. Membership benefits include professional advice, a lively forum for discussion and a key role in shaping the future of markets. Membership is open to any local or public authority having control of retail, wholesale, livestock markets, public abattoirs and pleasure fairs.
National Market Traders’ Federation
The National Market Traders’ Federation was founded in 1899 by a group of South Yorkshire market traders who felt there was a need for an organisation to represent their collective interests. Since then the NMTF has grown by leaps and bounds.
The NMTF works hard on behalf of its members. It lobbies government through the increasingly influential All Party Parliamentary Markets Group, and holds regular talks with other organisations involved in the industry.
