Dundee City Council has the following markets: monthly Farmers’ Markets, pop-up market element during some events.
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 do not permit any stall holders to sell real fur. All traders at our events are subject to an application process through our Environmental Health teams which requires the operators to list the products they intend to sell. Markets are then inspected by both Environmental Health and Trading Standards officers before and during selling to ensure that vendors are compliant at all times.
However, we are unaware of any official policy documents or guidelines to enforce this.
Please urge the Council to adopt the official Fur Free Markets policy by contacting Councillor Stewart Hunter, Licensing Committee Convener, email: firstname.lastname@example.org
