Abergavenny Market was run for many years by the 3 separate local
firms of J. Straker, Chadwick & Sons, Montague Harris & Co and Rennies trading independently within the same premises.
Abergavenny Market Auctioneers Limited (AMAL) was launched after the Foot & Mouth Crisis in 2001 when on the re-opening of the market the 3 firms merged their market interests, being joined soon afterwards by much of the trade from Monmouth following the closure of that market in 2003.
AMAL became Abergavenny & Newport Market Auctioneers Limited (ANMAL) in 2010 following the closure of Newport Market. ANMAL was a consortium, wholly owned by the 3 partner firms of J. Straker, Chadwick & Sons, Montague Harris & Co and Newland Rennie Wilkins. The combined company with a pooling of resources, ran ANMAL from the Abergavenny premises between 2010-2013.
During this time and for several years before, the Company has been fully involved with Monmouthshire County Council in its development of a new state of the art replacement market at Bryngwyn, Near Raglan.
The New Site at Bryngwyn, held it's first sale on Tuesday 17th December 2013 as Monmouthshire Livestock Market, a consortium owned by J. Straker, Chadwick & Sons and Newland Rennie.
