This year, the Litchfield Pickers Market will have some structural changes to ensure public safety and sanitation standards for visitors, vendors, and staff. These changes include the following: Vendor areas have expanded to ensure adequate social distancing. There will be one empty space between each vendor booth, and on narrower streets, vendors will only be located on one side of the street. Due to these changes, vendors will be in additional locations, so make sure to walk and view all areas of the market. The City of Litchfield will follow the CDC’s mask mandates, so please stay up to date with these policies. Please follow safe social distancing practices of six feet or more for all individuals you encounter, this includes 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 located on block of the market. Music will still be held in the park, but visitors will be required to bring their own seating to avoid the frequently touched surfaces of communal picnic tables. The City of Litchfield will be following the guidelines set forth by the CDC and will adapted them as deemed necessary throughout the year. The Litchfield Pickers Market is appreciative of the public’s understanding and cooperation in implementing these changes. The Litchfield Tourism Office and Prairie Pickers are excited to bring this event back to the public.
