Lakeview Farmers' Market

Volunteer Committee Member Description


CreativeHub 1352 is a non-profit, charitable, community-driven organization which exists for the advancement of community cultural development through the arts, heritage, and environmental sciences.

CreativeHub 1352 is one of many groups vital to the reuse of the Small Arms Inspection Building, a historically significant site, owned and operated by the City of Mississauga. As a community programming partner, we deliver a mix of programs, projects, education, and events that foster collaboration, engage the community, and enrich people's lives. All proceeds are reinvested to support community arts, heritage and environmental programs.

The vision of the Lakeview Farmers’ Market is to enrich lives by providing access to locally grown and sourced healthy food, organic and artisanal products and to provide an income opportunity for local farmers, producers and artisans. The Market, now in its fourth year, operates at the historical Small Arms Inspection Building, located at 1352 Lakeshore Road East in Mississauga on Sundays from May 28th to October 29th, 2023.
