WILLMAR -- It's usually a good sign when an event outgrows its venue. For Miriam VandeSteeg, market manager of the Willmar Farmers Market, it was a bittersweet realization.

This year, instead of holding the weekly Saturday farmers market at Westside Liquor in Willmar, the market had to move to a bigger location: the Kandiyohi County YMCA parking lot.

"We had a good place at Westside, and we did very well there," VandeSteeg said.
