ST. CLOUD -- Every Saturday from May through October, downtown St. Cloud hosts a weekly farmer's market, showcasing homegrown produce and handmade goods from vendors around the area.

The farmer's market is in its first year in its new location - the parking lot across from Perkins.

Local vendor Steve Gessell says the change in location has had a positive impact on the farmer's market.

"The parking is good and there's more room for the vendors," Gessell says. "There's also more room in the middle for people to congregate."

The farmer's market takes place every Saturday from 8 a.m. til noon until the end of October.
