Insurance for crafters and craft stalls

Whether you’re selling at craft fairs or at market stalls, getting the right insurance cover is crucial.

Public liability insurance is a key cover for craft businesses, as it covers you against claims made by a member of the public for injury or damage caused by your business. For instance if someone was badly injured when they tripped over stock beside your craft stall, they could make a compensation claim against you.

Product liability insurance can also be really important for crafters, as it covers you against compensation claims made for injury or damage that’s caused by one of your products. Even if you haven’t made the product yourself, in some situations you may still be liable for compensation claims.

Build a tailored crafters insurance policy with these core covers, and opt to add additional protection like stock insurance if you need it.

Do I need public liability insurance for a craft stall?
