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: We don’t currently have a policy but have checked with stall holders and no one is selling any real fur items, we would be happy to receive a recommended form of words to include in our existing trading conditions.
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 Gill Bell, Market Manager, email: firstname.lastname@example.org
