  • Awesome place for breakfast (wasn't busy) and good for lunch (little more busy). Shopping and some local art-- kinda pricey. Spent about 3 hours eating and walking around. It would be a fantastic plac...  more »
  • We were only one day in Vancouver but could not miss a visit to the public market and we have done well! Very very very cute! First we did a mini cruise to False Creek with the royalcat that is a truly unique we paid 8 bucks a head. The round trip takes 40 minutes and then leave you to the public market. Go there hungry because you taste everything! We ate the salmon burger and it was yummy. The salmon that you will eat in Vancouver is different from salmon lying to us, whether by color of flavor. The Aquabus is Hornby St, costa 3.5 dollars each way it lasts a couple of minutes.

  • Granville island is a great place to visit and shop. The market has many vendors that sell fresh produce or specialty foods. There are also many great restaurants as well as several different theatres to see a live performance of a play. There's is also a full service hotel, a community centre, the kids market, art supplies store, and access to the false Creek ferries. Overall it is a tremendous place to take a tourist or to spend the afternoon with a friend.
  • Fun touristy spot in Vancouver BC. With that said, it tends to be expensive! Musical performers out on nice days. The actual Farmers Market is impressive. Plan on several hours, grab a meal at one of the many restaurants or create a picnic style meal for the car or hotel, of your visiting.
  • The Granville Island Public Market is a great place to go and grab some local grub. While staying at the Granville Island Hotel my wife and I frequented the market before hitting the town for the day or if we were going to have a picnic on the island. We found great coffee and great food to get us going, but unfortunately the gluten free options are limited but if you look around you can find them. We came back from touring Vancouver a couple of nights and hit the Market to get our picnic on back at the hotel. The Market is a good experience and a good place to find food, fun, and all sorts of crafts. I would recommend the experience.
  • Stuart's bakery and their cheesecakes! Teas and every international cuisine that you can think of :) Nice places to sit and have coffee and some nice desserts with friends. Lovely local produce on display. The boat houses in the neighborhood are a highlight in that area. The graffiti on the cement mixing plant is very impressive as well. Granville island public market sure has charm.
  • Fantastic tourist destination. Great food & drink with variety. If you didn't like Pike Market, still give this a try. It's not as nuts and you won't spend $200 to eat and pick up a few local favors. You can get great European food, oysters on the half shell, locally brewed beer and locally distilled spirits all within about a mile radius. The view of downtown Vancouver is spectacular.
