The historic market, based in London’s trendy East, has announced they will be banning the sale of animal fur from the start of 2018.

In an official statement published on their facebook page, the market said the following:

“Following a review carried out by the Market, we have taken the decision to request stall holders do not offer animal fur for sale from the beginning of next year. The exact wording and details are still being worked out but we thought we’d share this now.”





Whilst animal fur is still legal to import into the UK, under certain EU laws, many large high street chains have faced recent public anger opposing the sale of real animal fur and instead opting for faux fur.

The market hosts over 70 stalls that sell a variety of food, clothing, art and other goods.
