Camden Markets is set to become one of the first markets in London to ban fur, it has announced.

It joins Old Spitalfields Market, who banned fur from the start of this year. Retailers such as Selfridges also operate a fur-free policy.

The ban will come into force from Thursday.

A spokeswoman for Camden Markets said: “Having reviewed the position of the Market with regard to traders selling fur, Camden Market’s owners, LabTech will be implementing a ban on fur from March 1. Whilst we respect and encourage independent business, with many niche traders, we do not feel fur has a place in Camden Market.”

Animal charity PETA’s director of corporate projects, Yvonne Taylor said: “Whether it’s a fluffy rabbit-fur key ring or a vintage fox-fur coat, all items made of fur are a product of extreme suffering,

“PETA commends Camden Market for doing the right thing for animals and consumers.”
