Insurance for farmer's markets - Ontario

I am just posting this for future market gardeners who may be having a hard time finding affordable liability coverage for market sales at an afforable price.

I am switching my HOME insurance to a company called:

Peel Maryborough Mutual Insurance Company

The policy is a country living policy and I signed up for the liability coverage for $50 for the year which covers me for up to $5000 of produce sales (the rate increases for higher amounts).

I have had such a difficult time finding someone to insure us at reasonable cost I felt it was worth posting this for others.

Do you know if they are only in Canada?

It doesn't look like it Marla, the broker map is just Ontario not even Canada-wide.

I just got a call from the insurance guy and it turns out he was wrong - they do NOT cover the liability at the farmer's market. So - I take it back! :)

Mine is classified as a small footage retail space. That's how one company called it, so that what my agent went with.
