WHY DOES A FOOD VENDOR NEED FLEA MARKET INSURANCE?
Flea markets offer a great opportunity for food vendors to sell their food and find new patrons. These markets are often full of eager patrons looking for great deals and a great experience, and many of those patrons are happy to find delicious new foods to try while they shop. But it’s important to realize that while a flea market is a great place to sell food, it’s also a risky place to do business if you do not have flea market insurance.
Flea Markets Bring Unique Risks
It is important for food vendors to have liability insurance that covers them at flea markets because when operating on someone else’s property, surrounded by crowds of people, there are greater chances of accidental property damage or personal injury. Because of these inherent risks, many flea markets require vendors to have liability insurance. So before you pack up and head out to feed hungry customers at a market, be sure that you have the coverage necessary to protect you.
FLIP Can Protect You From These Risks
