Bromley's Charter Market pledged to keep shoppers safe from counterfeit and illegal products by signing the Real Deal Charter last week.
The national charter, signed by Cllr Peter Morgan, aims to ensure consumers get a fair deal from market stalls and deter con-men looking to exploit shoppers.
“Entrepreneurial spirit is alive and well in Bromley with many successful businesses starting life on a market stall before growing into bigger premises,” said Cllr Morgan, executive for renewal and recreation.
“While Bromley Charter Market not only adds vibrancy to the town centre, it plays a vital role in the community, helping to make Bromley a destination for all - whether shopping, visiting, as a place to live or location to work.”
The signing of the charter coincided with the council’s Love Your Local Market campaignm promoting street markets and reducing the price of stalls to enterprising youngsters for a limited period.
Offering a mix of foods, gifts and speciality goods, the market runs on Bromley High Street every Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
