MISSOULA, Mont. -

The St. Patrick House hosted a market place this weekend to raise money for their hospitality house.

The market featured local artists, collectors and crafters. It gave them an opportunity to showcase and sell their goods before the farmer's market season starts.

Volunteers say the St. Patrick house is a much needed 'home away from home' for Missoula patients while they receive medical services, so fundraisers like the market place are helpful to keep the house up and running.

?We have such a rural area and Missoula has a lot of people that come in from out of town who need to do things like chemo treatments, radiation treatments at St. Patrick Hospital, which are outpatient treatments and they need a place to stay,? said St. Patrick House?s Anna Hoppe.
