If you’re looking for the Capital City Public Market for your fresh bread and flowers on Saturday, head for The Grove Plaza, 850 Front St., Boise.

For this Saturday only, you’ll find the produce, food and artisan crafts market in The Grove, from 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Saturday, July 15.

About 110 of the usual 140 vendors will set up in the plaza. The one-day-only move will make room for the Twilight Criterium, the international bicycle racing event that will fill Downtown Boise on Saturday with hundreds of elite cyclists.

The Downtown Boise’s Criterium route will travel on Jefferson and Bannock streets between 6th and 9th streets. The Criterium runs from noon to 10 p.m. with a series of racing events throughout the day. It kicks off at 1 p.m. with the annual Kid’s Ride, with three-time Olympic gold medalist Kristin Armstrong. (Registration starts at noon.)

Downtown streets will be closed from noon to midnight.
