The range of food and goods was excellent, don't thing I did more than scratch the service,. Found some small craft pieces as presents and a couple of small items for a later snack.

We visited the market twice during our stay in Vancouver using the hop on off sight seeing buses. Lots of stalls selling all sorts of breads cakes pastries and food from all around the world. A must visit place if you are in Vancouver.

Great place to experience the sounds, sights and smells of this busy market. Lots of places to eat lunch and have a drink, pick up some wine and cheese for the evening ahead!

We enjoyed Granville Island even on a very rainy day. I'd suggest going within the first couple of days of your stay in Vancouver. We went on the second last day (visiting from Australia) which meant we couldn't take home all the cool yummy treats...More

It is what it is. The market has lots of variety but nothing you can't get elsewhere for less. Very expensive and crowded. Still, a worthwhile stop on the Vancouver tourist trail if only to take in the buskers and seagulls.

Travelled over to the island on the ferry. Pleasant journey, nicer than driving over the bridge. The island has a good range of shops and market stalls, although mainly catering to the tourist trade. a good range of food available for an al fresco mela.

Granville Island's packed theatres and art studios,
hobby shops and book stores, restaurants and bars, all
offer a plethora of activities and entertainment
options, leaving no one bored. The highlight of the
area is the Fisherman's Wharf, where the seagulls
overhead and the smell of the sea invigorate its many
visitors, some of who are there to shop the fresh

Any place on the Island will gladly accept almost any form of payment, There is no set rate. The exchange rate will vary from shop to shop. Unless you are aware of the bank rate you may pay more than you need to.

It is open seven days a week from 9am to 7pm. Depending on where you are downtown a bus up Granville is easy and you get off at the first stop after the bridge and then follow the signs. Alternatively for a more scenic route... More
