  • If you're looking for a big public market like Pike Place, this might disappoint. But what Granville Island Public Market lacks in quantity it more than makes up for in quality. There are still plenty...  more »
  • 全世界各种好吃的都有。很多艺人在这表演东西没有必要买,我觉得又贵又难看。都是吃的,可以多吃一点。坐那个小船比较有意思。这边治安都非常的好。可以配枪,但是要有持枪证,子弹不能上膛,然后要放在盒子里面上锁这边的刑事案件特别少。据说市场旁边,坐船的地方的公寓都是很多时尚的年轻人,包括同性恋居住的地方。景色非常好,人们也很友善。  more »
  • There are small docks in the West End of Vancouver, offering an opportunity to catch one of the charming False Creek ferry boats to Granville Island. And wandering through Granville Island is a treat ...  more »

  • 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.
