Options for Insurance
Talk to your existing Insurance Company about Liability Insurance
Western Financial Group provides a discounted rate for Insurance for Alberta Famers’ Market.
If you have a valid AFMA membership (www.albertafarmersmarket.com) and would like more information please contact Western Financial Group. Ph: (780)632-2004, Toll Free 1-855-232-2004, www.westernfinancialgroup.ca, Email: email@example.com
The insurance is all about risk sharing. With no insurance the risk is all with you. When a person’s actions result in an injury or damage to others, the law generally provides that the insured be held financially responsible. An example of this could be that you are a vendor and you have a tent set up outside at a market. There is a terrible windstorm and the tent (which you had anchored down) blows away and hurts someone or damages a vehicle. You would be responsible for the damages to the person or the vehicle as you are the owner of the tent. If you had insurance your liability insurance would cover the loss. If you had no insurance you would have to pay for the damage out of pocket. This could be a small claim or a large one and if you did not have insurance your assets could be depleted to cover the costs of the lawsuit. For a small annual premium you would have the peace of mind .
We ask that all vendors submit information on themselves and their product for the Market Manager to include on our Facebook site www.facbook.com/sebabeachfarmersmarket and that you will both “Like” and “Share” the market site on your own page.
