I had mine with Direct Line and then artists insurance via AIR.

It is usually very reasonably priced and lots of craft fairs require it.

A while ago now but I've used Manor Insurance and Ian Wallace. I've also known people use the market traders federation one but iirc there was some reason why I couldn't use theirs (it was slightly cheaper than the others)

I got mine through Direct Line too- it was £55 for a year - I chose very low cover for materials/ stock etc as I only really wanted it for the public liability. Just check the level of public liability- mine was for £2million I think ,but that meant I couldn't do some council run out door fairs which needed £5million (I make finger puppets!!!!). I believe that Market Traders Association has a higher one and comes highly recommended.
I'm not saying you should- but I just winged it for my first couple until I knew I wanted to make it a regular thing! i've done loads and never been asked to show my documents-mind you it's quite cheap and will give you peace of mind. Good luck with your fair

I have mine through Usborne. My cover is also £2mill. I was asked for higher and explained that imo it was unnecessary, sent a copy of the policy and they accepted it.

Just bedb getting quite for craft insurance and the Marker Trader Insurance is cheaper as it does not include online trading.

I am going with Ian Wallace...with the interest free payments over a year option £71 grin
