Litchfield Pickers Market Seventh Season
August 14, 2022 @ 9:00 am - October 9, 2022 @ 3:00 pm
The Litchfield Pickers Market will return Sunday, August 14, 2022, from 9 AM – 3 PM in Downtown Litchfield, which will start at 400 North State Street. This vintage and antique market is a fun and family- friendly event. We cannot wait to see the vendors and visitors back in Litchfield, IL. The Litchfield Pickers Market is the largest open-air pickers market in the region. The market is located less than 3 miles off Interstate 55. Litchfield Pickers Market specializes in antiques, collectibles, vintage items, and refurbished items and occurs every second Sunday of the month through October.
Each month the Litchfield Pickers Market welcomes musicians to perform at the Carnegie Park. During the market on August 14, 2022, B & B Strings will start the morning off by playing live music from 9 AM to 11:30 AM. B & B Strings consists of acoustic guitars, bass guitar and some keyboard accompaniment. The three members play classic rock, country and they are always working within harmony arrangements. Following B & B Strings will be Skibbereen who will also play live from Noon to 3 PM. Skibbereen plays blues, jazz, reggae, rock, and roll, and Celtic. Please make sure you bring your own lawn chairs or picnic blankets so you can relax, sit back, and enjoy the free music.
There have been some changes to the Litchfield Pickers Market to ensure public safety and sanitation standards for visitors, vendors, and staff. To the aid in public sanitation efforts, everyone will be asked directly to dispose their own trash into the provided dumpsters that is located on the block market. Limited picnic tables are provided in the park area, but the public is encouraged to bring a lawn chair. The Litchfield Pickers Market is appreciative of the public’s understanding and cooperation in implementing these changes throughout the season.
We want you to have the best Pickers Market experience so it is recommended to bring totes, wagons, carts, pick- up trucks and anything that will help you haul all the great treasures you will have at the Litchfield Pickers Market.
