The NMTF was founded in 1899 as the National Market Traders Federation. To date, we are the only national trade association for market and street traders, events retailers and mobile caterers in the UK.
the headquarters of the NMTF, is located in Hoyland, Barnsley, South Yorkshire.
The NMTF has 15 employees, the majority of whom are office based.
Head Office has five departments: Office of the Chief Executive, Publicity, Projects, Membership and the Secretariat.
Each department is there to work with and for the members of the NMTF, steered by the elected Executive Board.
The NMTF works hard in the interests of our members.
We lobby government through the increasingly influential All-Party Parliamentary Markets Group (APPMG) and hold regular talks with other organisations involved in the industry.
The NMTF lobbies parliament to oppose legislation we believe would be detrimental to our members and the industry.
We will continue to fight to enhance the markets and events industry and preserve the livelihoods of our members.
One of the ways we are doing this is through the Mission for Markets campaign, run in partnership with the National Association of British Market Authorities (NABMA).
In addition, the NMTF also negotiates at the local level with market operators and provides advice and guidance to members on any small business matter.
As a member of the Genesis Initiative, NMTF is active in Europe, making positive attempts to influence EU legislation before it becomes law.
Advertising with the NMTF is a must for anyone who wants to reach micro-businesses trading on markets, festivals and fairs. With 20,000 members, the NMTF is the only national trade association for market and street traders, events retailers and mobile caterers in the UK.
