About Us


The Northside Merchants Association is a non-profit group focused on merchant organizing and supportive programming for the Northside business community. Our target area is Bedford Avenue north of Grand Street, and the adjacent commercial streets.

While the name NMA has been around since the 1980’s, 2012 marks a renewed effort to organize our local businesses around common issues like sanitation, security, and combined marketing.

The revamped Northside Merchants Association is anchored by a commitment to open communication. Daily interaction with local businesses along with continued investment in our online presence guarantee our local businesses input into the planning process.

Creative programming is at the heart of the Northside Merchants Association, and the coming years will see holiday events, sales promotions, and public art programs that will highlight the creative heart and soul of the Northside.
