Peddling & Commercial Soliciting Definitions

Peddling is defined as the sale or offering for sale of property, for immediate delivery from other than a fixed place of business on private property. Commercial Soliciting is defined as the selling or offering for sale of property for future delivery from other than a fixed place of business on private property or the soliciting of funds not involving the sale of property. Peddling and commercial soliciting does not include the sale of goods by local not-for-profit organizations organized for educational, religious, or other charitable purposes.

Every person engaging in the business of peddling or commercial soliciting must obtain a permit from the Village of Deerfield. Each person needs to complete the application, submit a letter from their employer authorizing them to solicit and submit a state-issued photo ID (valid drivers license or State ID is acceptable). The Village has five business days to respond to the request. There is a $50 (non-refundable) fee per person for a 90-day period. Commercial solicitation and peddling is permitted 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.

For more information, contact Deputy Village Clerk Daniel Van Dusen at or at 847.719.7404.
