What others are saying

– The State Fair vendors that bring in the most bucks? The St. Cloud Times has a list, and of course, Sweet Martha's is No. 1 with $2.9 million in 2014.

KSTP looked at vendor health inspection data, and found that most spots only have a few minor violations, if they have any at all.

– A half-long block of manure that reaches 14 feet high – that's what some fair crew members have to deal with every day WCCO says, while explaining just how they get rid of it.
