Charter aims to keep Grantham Market free from counterfeit goods

Have your say

Grantham Market is one of 25 signed up to a charter which aims to crack down on the sale of counterfeit and illegal goods at markets and car boot sales across the county.

Lincolnshire County Council is behind the ‘Real Deal’ charter.

Angela Kane, senior trading standards officer, said: “Local markets are at the heart of our communities, so we need to keep both the traders and shoppers safe. Shoppers can rest assured that if they buy an item from one of the 25 markets across Lincolnshire, accredited with the Real Deal Charter, the item will not be counterfeit, illegal or dangerous.”
