Ladies and gentlemen, summer is officially over. And, if you’re someone who frequents the farmers markets during the summer months in Mississauga, or if you’ve been meaning to hit one up but haven’t yet, then you better do so soon because time is quickly running out.

The farmers markets across Mississauga are all coming to a close in October, so it’s time to head to them and grab whatever you need before it’s too late.

There are a number of these great markets throughout Mississauga but the biggest ones are in Port Credit, Streetsville, and Mississauga’s Celebration Square. Those three markets usually start around June and run through October, offering the very best in homemade jams, jellies, cookies, and natural meat, fruits, and veg.

If you need some great organic, Canadian-made fruit and veg, you might want to go to the markets before they shut for the winter. Especially with Thanksgiving right around the corner, you might want to grab some jams or jellies, and meat if you’re able to freeze it for a while. Anyway, we’ve listed the three major markets below, along with their addresses and the final dates that they’re open.

City Centre Lions Farmers Market

  • Mississauga Celebration Square
  • Wednesday October 16th

Port Credit Farmers Market

  • Lakeshore Road East and Elmwood Ave.
  • Sunday October 6th

Streetsville Lions Farmers Market

  • Centre Plaza
  • Saturday October 12th

Of course, if you plan on preserving some foods for a while, you should definitely head to Celebration Square’s Market on the 16th. If you’re just in need of some goodies in the meantime, hit-up Port Credit or Streetsville. Regardless of your reasoning or your means, you definitely need to get back to the Mississauga farmers markets one last time before they’re gone for the next 6-7 months. Don’t say we didn’t warn you!
