An outdoor farmers’ market is opening soon in Mississauga
If you were worried that COVID-19 would hamper your ability to buy fresh produce right from a farm, fear not—an outdoor farmers' market will be opening this spring in Mississauga.
CreativeHub 1352, a not-for-profit organization that runs programs and events at the Small Arms Inspection Building in Lakeview, recently announced that the second season of the Lakeview Farmers' Market will kick off next month.
The weekly market will be held at the Small Arms Inspection Building (1352 Lakeshore Rd. E.) outdoor site at Dixie and Lakeshore Rd.
The market will launch on May 30, 2021, and will run every Sunday from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm until October 10.
Organizers say the market features local, sustainable, organic, and artisanal products.
"The Lakeview Farmers' Market is destined to be your Sunday neighbourhood gathering place for locally grown and sourced produce, small batched products, along with meats, fresh baked goods, preserves, jams, maple syrup, and artisan products", said Executive Director of CreativeHub 1352, Diane LaPointe, in a statement.
"Take the opportunity to talk with those who grow and produce the food that ends up on your plate. The market provides a chance to eat fresh, shop local, and learn from those in the know."
Organizers say the market will abide by all COVID-19-related rules and restrictions.
On its website, CreativeHub 1352 says that it's also seeking submissions from visual artists to create an original image for the 2021 Lakeview Farmers' Market. Artists must apply by May 30.
