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:   We currently have a trader on the Christmas Market who is selling small fur items. As far as we are aware, these items meet with the current government guidance. To date, we have not received any other applications from traders to sell fur items. 

Manchester Markets does not currently have a written policy which covers the sale of fur and skins.

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 Matthew Bennett, Head of Commissioning and Delivery, email: m.bennett1@manchester.gov.uk
