In a digital age of online shopping, click and collect and “serve yourself” checkouts, markets remain at the heart of real human interaction and are often the life blood of our communities, towns and cities.
By combining research, innovation, commitment to operational excellence and professional communication, the most successful markets today focus on providing the missing personal engagement which technology is rapidly eroding from our daily lives.
As people and partnerships together become a key tool in economic revival and regeneration, modern markets are re-purposing and responding to local needs and consumer trends.
NABMA is committed to the vision that markets have a key role to play in providing vibrant and successful communal places with a difference – where people can work, shop, play, enjoy the human touch and the personal contact with individual traders in that special markets atmosphere.
