HELENA -- With the July 25 Helena Farmer's Market canceled, the owners of Hub Coffee immediately asked, "What can we do to help?"

Tina Segura, co-owner of Hub Coffee, said they plan on hosting two vendors from the recently canceled Helena Farmer's Market because she said she knows what it's like to handle COVID-19 uncertainty in the business realm.

"Once we found out that the farmer's market was canceled, we recalled what it felt like when we had to close down our shop for about six weeks," said Segura. "We didn't know how long we'd be shut. For them, they know it's pretty likely their shut for the summer. Just remembering emotionally how that felt. Financially, how it felt. If there was anything that we could do, whether it's buy extra produce from a local vendor, or open up space, we just wanted to jump in and help."

According to the Hub Coffee Facebook page, Missoula Grain and Vegetable Co. and BisonFeather Designs will be open on their patio from 9 A.M. to 1 P.M.
