Q: Do you allow stall holders at your markets to sell real fur? (including small items such as knitted hats with fur bobbles, or key rings with fur trims etc.

A:  Although we have no specific written policy on this subject, we wouldn’t knowingly allow anyone to retail animal fur on the market.

No one has retailed fur on our markets for many years.

However, we are unaware of any official policy documents or guidelines to enforce this.

At their request we have sent them our recommended policy to consider.
