What Is Farmers Market Insurance?

Insurance for farmers markets protects homemade food vendors, farmers, and food stands from third-party claims that might arise from their participation in a farmers market. Covered claims may include slip and fall accidents, illnesses caused by food products, or equipment loss.

Farm market insurance from FLIP includes general liability insurance, product liability insurance, personal business property/inland marine insurance, and damage to premises rented insurance. On top of that, it can be purchased 100% online, meaning you can get comprehensive farmers market insurance now in 10 minutes or less.

How Much Does Farmers Market Vendor Insurance Cost?

A basic farmers market insurance policy from FLIP starts at $299 per year or $25.92 per month. However, there are additional coverage options that you can add to customize your policy.

As a farmers market vendor, you may wish to increase your business personal property coverage amounts or add professional liability coverage, for example.

You may also need an endorsement such as a food trailer endorsement if you haul or sell your products from a trailer. It is important to note that adding these additional coverages or higher limits will raise the price of the annual policy. 

An annual FLIP policy not only saves you money in the long run, but it’s also ideal if you sell at year-round markets.

Do I Need Farmers Market Insurance to Sell at a Market?

Yes. When you operate at a farmers market, you are liable if injuries, illnesses, or damages happen due to your business operations.

For example, if a customer gets sick from your food or trips and falls over your booth and is injured, you could be held responsible. Claims from unfortunate incidents like these can easily wipe out your business and personal finances and cause your business to close.

In addition, many farmers markets and organizers require all food vendors and farmers to carry them as additional insureds to protect them from your liability. Liability insurance for farmers markets can give you increased professionalism and credibility as well as protect your business.

General Liability

Aggregate Limit: $2 Million

General liability insurance can provide protection for third-party bodily injury and property damage claims. A general liability claim could look like a customer who while browsing your stand, trips over a power cord and cuts their hand on the corner of your booth. Because they tripped on your business equipment, you are held liable.

product liability

Product Liability

Aggregate Limit: $2 Million

Product liability insurance for farmers markets can protect you from the expensive cost of related claims. Product liability claims can look like a customer suing you for not properly preparing your food after they got food poisoning from your food. A claim like this could cost you thousands of dollars in bills and fees. Product liability insurance can mitigate or even eliminate those out-of-pocket costs.

FAQs About Farmers Market Insurance

The food trailer endorsement only covers liability incidents when the trailer is detached and parked. If you are towing or transporting the food trailer, make sure your vehicle’s auto policy covers the trailer. Personal auto insurance may not cover your food trailer if you are using your personal vehicle for business purposes. Also, some auto policies may exclude trailers that have license plates or vehicle identification numbers (VINs).

An additional insured is a person or organization not automatically included as an insured under an insurance policy and who is included or added as an insured under the policy at the request of the named insured. 

For example, one or more of the farmers markets that you are a vendor at could request to be listed as an additional insured on your policy. This will help protect them in case of an incident regarding your liability at their event. With a FLIP farmers market insurance policy, you receive free, unlimited additional insureds. You can add as many as you need in minutes through your online portal.
