Islington Council has the following markets: Chapel Market, Whitecross Street, Exmouth Market and Archway, with other licensed pitches scattered sites across the borough.
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: At a meeting on 09/09/19 the council passed a motion to ban the sale of fur. We await written confirmation of the exact details of the ban and will update here when we have it.
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 join the official Fur Free Markets scheme by contacting Councillor Asima Shaikh, Executive Member for Inclusive Economy and Jobs, email: firstname.lastname@example.org
