Valley Flea Market site near Spicer, Minn., cleaned up


SPICER -- A well-known eyesore along state Highway 23 near Spicer disappeared last week.

The Valley Flea Market, which had been declared a nuisance under Kandiyohi County's zoning ordinance, was razed and the debris removed during the week between Christmas and New Year's.

The work was completed by an adjoining landowner who is related to the property owner, likely saving the county the time and expense of the cleaning the site to eliminate the public hazard.
