Ceredigion County Council has the following markets: Aberystwyth farmer’s market, annual food festival and annual Sea 2 Shore Festival, annual winter fairs in Cardigan and Aberystwyth. The council owns Aberystwyth and Cardigan market halls.
Here is the Council’s response to our FoI request:
Q: Do you allow stall holders at your markets to sell real fur?
A: ‘The Farmers Market sells only good produced by the stall holder’
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 Cllr Gareth Lloyd, Portfolio holder for Economic Development and Community Development, email:firstname.lastname@example.org .
