Eden District Council has the following markets: Penrith Farmers’ Market, Appleby Market.
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 market policy does not restrict the sale of fur but we do not have any traders selling 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 Cllr Mary Robinson, Commercial Services Portfolio Holder, email: firstname.lastname@example.org
