What's new for MFMA's 2022 Insurance Program for Market Vendors and Farmers' Markets? 

We're happy to report we will not increase premiums in 2022!

After 5 years of no premium increases, the underwriter of our policy raised rates to the tune of about $10/year in 2021. For our 2022 policy, the underwriter wanted to raise rates another 6%, but because of our vendors' and markets' AMAZING safety track record, our agents at Advantage 1 in St. Cloud fought hard and pushed that back to just 1%. That means NO increases on rates for 2022! Thank you so much for producing the safest, most healthy food in Minnesota and Wisconsin and for operating such safe, welcoming markets. 

The Minnesota Farmers’ Market Association offers a group insurance policy exclusively for MFMA member markets and MFMA member vendors through Advantage 1 Insurance Agency. Please note this policy covers markets and vendors in both Minnesota and Wisconsin!
