Mich.candy maker has the ambition but no place to sell his wares after a Lansing area farmers' market said it's too full to accept his application.

The Lansing State Journal reports Friday that the Meridian Township Farmers' Market is not reconsidering William Zsigo's request to operate Will-Yum's Chocolates.

The Haslett sixth-grader received a rejection email on Nov. 20 after loading up on chocolate. Market operators said there already were enough vendors selling sweets.

The newspaper says William has made more than $5,000 and has made chocolate treats for a wedding. He has used his earnings to buy a golf cart to help sell his chocolate door-to-door.

Konny Zsigo says his son is "trying to sell a little bit of chocolate and not play his Xbox."
