ST. CLOUD -- Every week people gather in front of the Bremer Bank to showcase their hard work at the weekly Farmers Market.

"This is a really good market," says Jon Ness. "We have a lot of drive by traffic and people can see us."

People from around the area bring their home-grown items to sell, every item no more than a few days old.

"It's fresh, everything we sell here is day old to a couple of days old at the most," says Ness.

However the unpredictable Minnesota weather growing can sometimes be a challenge.

"It's really the Minnesota weather that makes it tough," says Ness. "First it's hot then it rains then hot again, crops don't like that."

The Farmers Market is held every Saturday from 8:00 a.m. until Noon, and goes until October 26th.
