HELENA -- The Helena Farmers' Market is officially canceled for July 25.

Helena Farmer’s Market Board President Wayne O’Brien said in a voicemail to MTN, “We decided to pull the plug on running the market on Saturday. Just because we don’t feel like, that we have a winning proposition.”

The decision to cancel the Helena Farmers' Market comes less than a week after the market was held without an approved Lewis and Clark Public Health Coronavirus mitigation plan and a city permit to block Fuller Ave.
