Ridgefield has made door to door selling illegal. During a public hearing and town meeting, residents approved changes to a town ordinance. The peddling law was changed to eliminate the permit process for door to door sales. There are several exceptions including non-profits like Scouts, religious organizations, political canvassing and farmers and gardeners. Only one person in attendance objected, questioning why newspapers, magazines and other periodical subscriptions were specifically mentioned as not being allowed, and called it a First Amendment issue.
