Mississauga's First Ever Massive Holiday Street Market

by Liz Heather in

The holidays are here and I DON'T CARE IF YOU AGREE OR NOT, they're here! What better way to start celebrating it than by stopping at Mississauga's first ever Holiday Street Market that's happening this Saturday? (Does this seem like an ad? It screams "ad" to me, but really I'm just pushing it so hard because I'm not in town and won't be able to go. If I were in Mississauga right now, though? I'd be all over this mother.)

This year, for the first time ever, Mississauga is launching a pop-up Holiday Street Market that'll take place in Celebration Square. The event, which will be presented by insauga.com, is a joint venture between the city and Philip Suos, the founder and festival director of the Junk Food Festival and Toronto’s Mac and Cheese Festival.

This will be the city’s biggest holiday market ever and there will be a ton of activities. Also, the market will coincide with the Square’s annual Light Up the Square tree lighting event.
In terms of activities, artisan vendors from all over Canada will be on hand selling one-of-a-kind goods and treats. There will also be food trucks, free carousel rides, a marshmallow firepit, a warm-up lounge, NES Classic Edition game competitions, gingerbread decorating and more. And there may or may not be real reindeer. Visitors can also take photos with Santa, write letters to Santa and indulge in crafts and face painting. There will also be roaming entertainers, an elves agility course and more. 

It's totally free and it'll run from noon until 11pm and it sounds amazing.
