June is full of activities you don't want to miss!

What a warm welcome the Lakeview and Mississauga Community received on opening day May 26!


Our local farmers and artisans were delighted to see you all supporting local businesses. The morning was packed with fresh produce, beautifully scented candles, handmade soaps, one-of-a-kind jewelry, and great ambiance provided by Jazz Plazma, who set the perfect morning vibes.


But this is just the beginning of this season's Lakeview Market. CreativeHub's team is working tirelessly to ensure that every weekend offers enjoyable activities alongside the support of our local vendors.
