The Risk and Liability of Running a Farmers Market

October 12, 2022 at 3pm, Via Zoom 

Is your farmers market prepared for an emergency or accident? Does your insurance policy cover what it needs to cover? Do you know how to document an incident? In this webinar, Katie Atkinson of New Oak Insurance will help you answer these questions. She will discuss the potential big issues to look out for and how to conduct an annual checkup. She will also share the questions to ask your insurance agent to make sure your market or vendor business is fully covered.

The answers to these questions may be different whether your market:

  • is on public property versus private property
  • uses volunteer or paid staff
  • is a non-profit, government or private organization

Join us October 12, 2022 at 3pm via Zoom to ensure that you are taking the necessary precautions.
