M'ART, noun [from market.] A place of sale or traffick. It was formerly applied chiefly to markets and fairs in cities and towns, but it has now a more extensive application. We say, the United States are a principal mart for English goods; England and France are the marts of American cotton.

M'ART, verb transitive To buy and sell; to traffick. [Not used.]
