All market vendors, including crafts vendors, are now required to carry Commercial Liability Insurance. This is a requirement from our own market insurer. Read the Vendor Insurance Information Sheet for additional information about your options.

Vendor Insurance Information Sheet

If you do not already have vendor liability insurance, you can quickly and easily get a single event policy that meets the requirement for $49 from Act Insurance. You can apply online and get the required certificate of insurance (COI) on the spot, downloaded directly from the site!

(Disclaimer: This does not constitute an endorsement. We have no direct experience or affiliation with Act Insurance. We just understand from other vendors that this is an easy, viable option. Other options may also work for you. See Vendor Insurance Information Sheet for additional details.)

If you already have a general liability policy, you should be able to quickly and easily obtain a COI naming us as an additional insured by emailing your agent with our name and address, or logging into your account, inputting our information, and downloading a certificate directly.
