Micro Mart is a weekly computer magazine published in the United Kingdom by Dennis Publishing Ltd., as of 2015 it had a circulation of 5,422.
The magazine contains news, reviews, articles, and classified adverts covering many popular areas of computing (both in hardware and software areas). The magazine's articles are targeted at many different levels of expertise, from beginners' tasks (such as working with Word documents, setting up a simple wireless network, or building a water-cooled PC) to more advanced articles (such as working with Linux kernels or becoming a shareware author).
The magazine is also notable for being the only publication in the UK to still regularly cover the Amiga market, most magazines having abandoned coverage of the format in the years following the collapse of Commodore.
Micro Mart was launched in November 1985 as a fortnightly publication called Micro Computer Mart consisting of classified advert listings for the computer trade. The magazine soon expanded in editorial content to include articles and reviews from many realms of computing. It became popular with both amateur and professional system builders. In 1991, due to reader demands, Micro Mart moved to a weekly format.
On 14 November 2002 (issue 723) the magazine moved to a full colour format, having previously been printed in black and white. At this time, Micro Mart also expanded in content (for example Ask Jason moved from 1 to 2 pages).
Since then, the magazine has celebrated its 30th birthday, its 1,400th issue and had several design changes, the most recent in 2011.
Micro Mart was initially published by MicroMart (UK) Ltd. Owners Stewart Somerville and Roy Perrin, along with Stewart's wife Fiona, controlled publication and distribution of the magazine until 28 February 1995 when Trinity Publications (a subsidiary of the Trinity Mirror group) bought the company. On 12 June 2006 the magazine was bought by Dennis Publishing Ltd.after a deal brokered by Ian Savage Publishing. The magazine joined the ranks of titles such as Computer Shopper, PC Pro, and Custom PC.
The magazine is currently under the editorship of Anthony Enticknap, whose leadership in recent years has seen the magazine solidifying its sales and readership figures at a time when traditional print media is being squeezed by the Internet. The magazine is overseen by Simon Brew.
