What Is State Fair Food Insurance?

State fair food insurance is a combination of liability coverages designed to protect your business from the financial burden of claims. Claims can happen at any time and have the potential to financially devastate your business.

Common claims can include third-party bodily injury accidents, property damage, foodborne illness, and more. State fair food insurance can mitigate or even eliminate the out-of-pocket costs of claims.

Do You Need Insurance to Sell Food at State Fairs?

Yes. Selling food products at state and county fairs comes with a unique set of risks, from trip-and-fall accidents and property damage claims to customers becoming sick from the food you served them. If an accident involving your business or food product occurs at your vendor stand, you could be held liable to pay tens of thousands of dollars—or more. 

That’s why your business needs state fair food insurance. It can reduce and in some cases remove the cost you may be required to pay for liability claims arising from your business operation.

How Much Does State Fair Food Insurance Cost?

The cost for state fair food vendor insurance starts at $25.92 per month or $299 per year. This price can fluctuate depending on:

  • The gross income amount of your business
  • The coverage limits you choose 
  • The coverages you include on your policy
