Public liability insurance, quite rightly, is a statutory requirement on all markets, anywhere in the UK. However we understand that entrepreneurs that are new to market trading would not want to commit to an annual premium when they are trading as an experiment for the first time. Therefore, Sketts have a scheme for new traders who want to try market trading, before committing themselves to the expense of buying Insurance for a whole year.
Traders may take advantage of our temporary insurance scheme, underwritten by Aviva that offers cover for Public Liability and products. This is available for a maximum of three attendances at the cost of an extra £5 per trading day. This will offer you peace and mind knowing that you are fully covered.
Please contact the head office 5 working days in advance of the event you are attending to arrange this cover.
Full Public Liability Insurance cover is provided FREE by joining the National Market Traders Federation

As an alternative, you can also obtain Public Liability insurance for a premium of £55 per year by contacting; G M Imber & Sons Ltd http://www.gmimberltd.com/MarketInsure%20Starter.html
