It’s the most wonderful time of the year! At least for those of us not covered in green fur and yelling profanities at Who’s. Yes Halloween is gone and Christmas is practically here! And we all know that means a few things; hot chocolate, winter jackets, yuletide cheer/mania, and lots of shopping.

It really is never to early to get a start on your Christmas shopping, if only to save yourself from the mad dash on the few days prior to December 25th! However, for us to jump into the great annual holiday events that pop-up all over the city, we actually do have to wait. That said, the wait is over! The events are kicking-off all over the city now in November, and today we want to point you in the direction of the annual Holiday Artisan Marketplace, hosted by Visual Arts Mississauga! Below is the full description, as per the official website:

“Get in the holiday spirit with Visual Arts Mississauga (VAM) at Riverwood!
