In may 2018 we received this update:

I can confirm that our Markets Code of Practice for Traders has been updated to state that traders are not allowed to sell any real fur based products on our regular weekly markets in the District.

They have been invited to join the Fur Free Markets scheme but have not yet responded.

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
