Mobile Vendor Insurance

We cover individual US-based merchants selling their wares or services in temporary spaces, like at fairs, festivals, farmers’ markets, trade shows, special events, conventions, etc. Think artisan crafters, concessionaires, fair/festival vendors, food stands, food trucks, mall kiosks, mobile pop-up shops, permanent jewelry vendors, and more: these are typical insureds under SIA's Vendors Insurance program. 

Our policy provides protection against bodily injury to a customer/guest or property damage to a premises you occupy. This policy insures your business, including employees and volunteer workers. It does not cover independent contractors (1099s) that you hire to work for you. 

Insureds must be a US resident with a US mailing address to be eligible for coverage under this policy, and the premium must be paid in US dollars.

Renewing Coverage

Approximately six weeks prior to your expiration, we will mail you an invoice. The information on the invoice is produced from the file that we have created for you, from the information that you have provided. Please review the invoice for any information that has changed and advise us as to what has changed. You can write your changes on the invoice and mail it to us, or call into the office and we will make the changes over the phone.

To renew your coverage you can mail in the invoice with your check or money order, or you can pay online with your credit or debit card. There is a 3.25% service fee for paying with a card. You can avoid this fee by mailing the invoice back with your check or money order. Read our Renewal Newsletter for policies beginning June 1, 2024 and after.


Our goal at Specialty Insurance Agency is to provide affordable insurance to our members.

Our insurance premiums are primarily calculated using two metrics: the number of members in a group, along with the amount paid out in claims the prior five years. In order to keep our premium costs low, claim reduction is key - but so is having a large enough group that our underwriter’s risk analysis is accurate.
