Belfast, United Kingdom

Belfast City Council has the following markets: St George’s Market (owned and managed by BCC) Smithfield Market (owned and managed by BCC) The Continental Markets at Christmas and Spring (owned and contracted to Market Place Europe Limited).

Here is Belfast City Council’s response to our FoI request:

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:  Some stall holders sell fur, some stall holders sell antiques and vintage items so some fur may be included in these items. These would amount to a few small items. There is currently nothing in place to prohibit the sale of fur at the markets.

 

The Council allows the sale of fur. 

Real fur is cruel and unnecessary. Please urge the Council to ban the sale of real fur on their markets and adopt an official Fur Free Markets policy by contacting Dirdre Hargey, Chair of the City Growth and Regeneration Committee, email: hargeyd@belfastcity.gov.uk
