The portable vintage and antique market will be open from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. in Downtown Litchfield (use 400 N. State St. for your GPS).
The Litchfield Pickers Market is called the largest open-air pickers market in the area. The market specializes in antiques, collectibles, vintage items, and refurbished items.
Musicians perform on the Carnegie Park stage. During the May 8 market, Avery Kern will kick off the day and perform live from 9 to 11:30 a.m., followed by Downstate from noon to 3 p.m.
This year, the Litchfield Pickers Market will be following the CDC Guidelines which have been relaxed for outdoor markets from last year. Please follow safe social distancing practices of six feet or more for all individuals you encounter, including other visitors, vendors, volunteers, and employees. To aid in public sanitation efforts, everyone will be asked to directly dispose of their own trash into provided dumpsters. Visitors are asked to bring their own seating as only a limited amount of picnic tables will be set out.
Visitors are advised to bring totes, wagons, carts, pick-up trucks or anything needed to help haul items.
There is no cost to enter the market. With multiple entry points, visitors can park around the perimeter and enter the market. Animals are not permitted.
