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: They are not currently included in a list of banned products.
The Council allows the sale of fur. They have asked to see our Fur Free Markets policy to consider.
