We Offer Membership

Founded in 1899, the NMTF is a trade association for market and street traders, mobile caterers and events retailers in the UK. If you trade on markets, festivals, fairs or shows – you’ve come to the right place. Find out if you can join here.

Membership includes all of this...

Membership includes liability protection, underwritten by Aviva. There’s one policy for all our members. As long as your membership is active, you’re protected by the policy. Terms, conditions and exclusions apply relating to certain products and trading activities. We are not regulated by the FCA. Read the key facts here. Questions? Contact us.

NMTF membership is personal, but covers the business you’re involved in and the annual fee is based on the legal structure of your business. Most people register as a sole trader, a partnership or a limited company. Find guidance on legal structures here.

Single membership: £140
Dual membership: £210
Triple membership: £280
Quadruple membership: £350

The NMTF is run by our members for our members. We are a healthy, vibrant trade association that is charged with safeguarding the industry.

We lobby national government through the influential All Party Parliamentary Markets Group and support local groups through the NMTF Groups Network.

Finally, we run business start-up schemes, work experience programmes, youth market events and promotional roadshows – none of which would be possible without the support of our members!
