Here is Ely Market’s (run on behalf on the council) position on fur:

We do NOT allow real fur to be sold on any of our markets or events throughout the year. We have had to enforce this in the past when we became aware that a trader was selling real fur pom pom hats imported from China.

 

We are delighted that a no fur policy is being enforced.  Please urge the Ely Markets to receive a Five Star Rating by  joining our official Fur Free Markets programme, by contacting Lisa Quin, Markets Officer, email: lisa.quin@elymarkets.co.uk

Here is the Council’s response to our Freedom of Information 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: Our license agreement in relation to Peterborough City Market does not contain any clauses specifically included to address the sale of real fur. However, none of the traders on Peterborough City Market sell any items containing real fur.   Herlington Market is administered by our section under the Misc Provisions Act 1982, traders pay a daily fee to trade. With regards to real fur we can add reasonable and appropriate conditions so I believe we would bar traders from selling these items.

However we are unaware of any policy to prevent the sale of real fur.

The Council allows the sale of fur. They have asked to see our Fur Free Markets policy to consider.

Real fur is cruel and unnecessary. Please urge the Council to ban the sale of real fur on their markets and adopt the official Fur Free Markets policy by contacting Councillor Steve Allen, Cabinet Advisor to the Leader, email: steve.allen@peterborough.gov.uk
