There is so much going on here. Fresh vegetables and fruit deli style, bread, and lots of stands to buy lunch. When walking the island there are art galleries and artisans. Lots of kitschy souvenirs too.

Granville Island is a different experience every time you come - visited in 2015, then again in 2017. The atmosphere is similar, but the weather, shops, company, all change your experience. This is somewhere to come with no agenda and you embrace what takes your...More

First off, if you're new to Granville Island, do the Vancouver Foodies Tour. Totally worth the money, and it made us come back a second time later on in our trip. There's a huge variety of food, so much that it's kind of dizzying, beer,...More
