Derbyshire Dales Council has the following markets: Ashbourne Market, Bakewell Market, Matlock Indoor 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: If someone approached us asking to sell real fur products then we wouldn’t allow it, though I expect that some people who sell things such as bobble hats may be selling products with fur trim.
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 Councillor Joanne Wild, Chair of the Community & Environment Committee, email: firstname.lastname@example.org
