Some of the businesses displaced by a fire in September that destroyed the Boise International Market have a new home.

A handful of former BIM merchants have joined the Global Community Market—a Saturday market-style bazaar that will include food, clothing and other goods. The market will be housed at Trailhead and was launched in conjunction with Jannus Economic Opportunity.

The Global Community Market is slated to run through Saturday, Dec. 19, but possibly longer.

"We want to support them through the holidays and see where we go from here," said Trailhead Executive Director Raino Zoller. 

The market, located at 500 S. Eighth St., will be open from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturdays beginning Nov. 28. According to Zoller, as many as 10 businesses that were members of the Boise International Market will participate, including a coffee shop and Ethiopian/Eritrean and Middle Eastern restaurants.
