Interested in setting up at a local farmer market

tomato_dreamerJanuary 26, 2006

I live outside a city that has a farmers market. I am interested in growing some produce to offer for sale there. I wonder if I need to purchase some liability insurance for my small operation. Do any of the folks here have any suggestions for me? Thanks, Paul.

I think you'll find that a lot of farmers' markets require liability insurance, which you can usually get as part of a farm policy. You then list the market (or, perhaps the city or the private institution that provides the site for the market) as a "named insured."
