Risk and Liability of Running a Farmers Market

Anyone can sue anyone for anything. What makes a difference in your favor is that you take appropriate precautions, are compliant with local and state regulations, and are adequately covered by insurance.

If you run a farmers market or have a business that sells at farmers markets, watch this webinar. The information goes well beyond liability insurance.

Katie Atkinson of New Oak Insurance discusses issues to look out for and how to conduct an annual checkup. She also shares the questions to ask your insurance agent to make sure your market or vendor business is fully covered.
