Market Stall & Stallholders Insurance

Are you attending an event as an exhibitor or stallholder? Then you need stallholder insurance to keep your finances fully protected.

Setting up for an event can take weeks of preparation as well as a lot of time and money. Every stall or interaction with the public brings with it a series of risks which could result in a claim being made against you. Should an accident happen, you may be left facing a hefty claim for injury, damages and legal costs. This is why its important to purchase comprehensive stallholders insurance.

Most stallholders will be required by law to have public liability insurance. Insure Our Event also recommends event equipment cover, event cancellation cover and employers’ liability insurance.

This comprehensive stallholder’s insurance policy will protect you from a wide range of eventualities. If bad weather prevents the event going ahead, you would be covered for the loss of revenue and the cost of travel and equipment hire. If an accident happens with your stall, you would be covered for the cost of legal fees if the injured party was unable to work, be they staff, a volunteer or a member of the public.

Whether it be at a village fete, a town market stall or at a local craft fair, Insure Our Event will assess your needs and requirements and curate the perfect policy for you. Our stallholders insurance is flexible, able to cover only the areas you require for the ideal tailored policy.

  • Temporary stalls in store or shopping centres
  • Temporary structure at events
  • Stalls within a public market
  • Tents or marquees

What we cover:

  • Mandatory public liability cover for stallholders
  • Employers’ liability cover relating to employees or volunteers
  • Hired or purchased equipment covered in the case of accidental loss or damage

  • Financial loss in direct relation with COVID-19
  • Anything covered by third party insurance, such as the organiser’s exhibition insurance or the venue’s insurance

Risk management of your stall at an event is vital for reducing the likelihood of a claim. It also significantly reduces the chances of legal costs and damages. Insure Our Event has created a “Spot The Risk” test, demonstrating the risks involved in running any type of event. We’ve also created a risk management checklist to help stallholders assess their set-ups.

It is mandatory for stallholders at public events to purchase their own public liability insurance. Other insurance policies such as employers’ liability, event equipment cover, cancellation cover and adverse weather are recommended.

To have their finances fully protected, stall holders need to invest in a comprehensive insurance policy from Insure Our Event.
