  • Incredible market with amazing produce, great views and many interesting food options. The meat, pastry and pasta shops are as good as it gets. They also have great fish options and any fruit you could imagine, including dragonfruit and some grapes I have never seen before. The bagel sandwiches here rival NYC and the donuts rival those in LA and Portland. However, the lunch options here leave a lot to be desired. If looking for lunch, leave the market for a sit down option outside of the market
  • This is a a fantastic market under a bridge! Tons of little shops and bars to check out! The fruits and vegetables are fresh here! There's like a water taxi that can take you quickly to seven other docks! That ferry runs all year round! There were grapes here that taste like cotton candy! Parking here is a bit tight. The locals here are so friendly! There's a couple musicians that really add to the atmosphere of the place! Definitely a place to not miss out if it's your first time in Vancouver!
  • This market is a great place to visit in Vancouver. Great view of the city, amazing food with many choices, and many different shops. This place has so much stuff that we couldn't explore everything in 3 hours. I'd recommend starting walking around and coming into the public market around lunchtime to explore around and grab some lunch free from the many different vendors. You can sit in the crowded inside or outside. One thing that must be noted is that parking is very tight here, and you might have to make a couple rounds around to find parking. You can park off the island too.
  • This area of Vancouver is like a little bubble stuffed with tourists eager to ogle the incredible displays of food, local art, and yachts. You can eat so many wonderful foods here. Everywhere you go here is crowded, but I guess that's the story with all tourist traps. This one is worth it.
  • At first glance, this seems like a typical tourist area, but it's actually more interesting. The fresh fruit and vegetables are displayed beautifully. There are lots of stalls selling prepared food - both meals and snacks. When you finish exploring all the stalls in this large market, you can explore the rest of Granville Island which is very pleasant.
