The Mississauga Central Lions club raises funds for donation through the operation of two Farmers Markets in downtown Mississauga, by sponsoring Bingo sessions at Rama Gaming Centre Mississauga and via other special projects.
Our Lions Club has operated our Farmers Markets as a fundraiser in Mississauga since 1975. In that time we have raised and donated well over five Million dollars to our community. Check out our Organizations Supported page to see who benefits from our fundraising efforts.
Two Lions Farmers Market Locations: Closed until June 2018 Every WEDNESDAYSthrough
June 7 through October 24, 20189 AM- 5 PM Mississauga Celebration Square,
located in front of Mississauga City Hall
Plenty of parking immediately below the market; accessible via stair adjacent to the market. Underground parking under City Hall and the Central Library is accessed from Duke of York Blvd.
Alternate access: Find us on Shipp Drive south of Rathburn Road East (just a few blocks east of our 2013 location at the Cineplex 10 theatre).
We have over nearly 400 free parking spaces for alonngside the market and additional 300 overflow parking spots at 4 Robert Speck Parkway.
To ease congestion in the parking lots the parking lot entrance closest to the Market is an EXIT ONLY. Please enter the parking lots by the southern entrances to the above and below ground parking lots. Note: Shipp Drive itself is designated as a No Parking at any time zone by the city - you may be ticketed by the Mississauga Parking Authority ($45 fine). Parking in Market parking lots is Free.
Shopping at our Farmers Markets is a healthy decision not only for you, but for our community's economy as well. For every dollar spent at our Market, another two dollars ripple through the provincial economy. In Ontario alone, sales at Farmers Market total almost $500 million, leading to an economic impact of an astounding $1.5 billion!
For every one person you see working at the Market, another two are busy at work back home. As many as 27,000 people in Ontario are directly involved in preparing and selling the products you find at the Market. Furthermore, Farmer Markets are good for other businesses too, Studies show that 60 to 70 percent of market-goers visit neighbouring businesses on their way to and from the market.
Due to the growth of Square One Shopping Centre and the development of Phase II of Sheridan College we had to relocate our Farmers markets in 2014. We hope our new locations will remain fixed for years to come.
The club is thankful to our current location sponsors: Colliers Macauley Nicholls (Ontario) Inc., Mississauga Executive Centre; Desjardins Financial Security Life Assurance Co., Onteri Holdings Ltd., AIMco Realty Investors LP for the use of their parking lot at 3 Robert Speck Parkway, and the City of Mississauga for the use of Celebration Square. Over the 43 years we have run Farmers Markets in Mississauga we are now in our eighth and ninth locations.
