Middlesbrough Council has the following markets: North Ormesby Market (Tuesdays and Saturdays), Orange Pip Market – food and drink only (last Saturday of each month)
Here is the 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: 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 the official Fur Free Markets policy by contacting Cllr Julia Rostron, Executive Member for Adult Social Care and Public Health, email: firstname.lastname@example.org
