This reminds me of Pike Place Market, but much cleaner/newer. Large selection of unusual cuts of cured meats at several meat markets. Artfully arranged produce stands, baked goods, and ethnic foods. W... read more »
This market is the coolest place ever! I can close my eyes right now and remember the beautiful fresh seafood and fruit displays. I can remember the delicious aromas permeating the surrounding air, an... read more »
Great place to walk around and look at the different vendors and craft stalls. Most of the crafts were pretty expensive; I think since they're made by hand, they are more costly, which makes sense. Lo... read more »
Always a great place to visit and walk around . Unique stores the market area wonderful should be able to find everything here good quality but you pay for it because of the location wonderful delis and butcher shops plus seafood also the food court is good.
One of my all-time favorite places to visit in Vancouver. Such an abundance of different kinds of food! You can surely find whatever you want. And a fantastic arts and cultural community. Even kids space and green space and lovely floating homes and. .. so much to discover 😊
Went here on recommendation and was very glad to have gone! First, I enjoyed a water bus trip here from the Olympic village. The market atmosphere was really happy, and there are so many super high quality food and arts&crafts stalls to explore. There's a handy ATM inside the market - ask for directions. Highlights for me were Lee's Donuts, the smoked salmon stall, and the pastry place near the ATM (apple galette out of this world!). I also enjoyed a wonder around the kids toy market and an art gallery near there. You can book whale watching trips from here for about $130. There were good public song performances and a funny bit of street theatre. Enjoyabke to sit on the terraces outside and eat your loot from the market while watching the boats and kayaks. Can easily spend 3 hours here!
I really enjoy the public market, but it does get quite busy here too. You have to be patient if you're hoping to find a parking spot on a beautiful sunny day. It would be wise to transit or walk here so you don't have to worry about parking! The vendors are friendly and the food is out of this world! Take your time sampling and choosing the best tasting items. My go-to's: Oyama Sausage Co., Terra Breads, and which ever fruit stand looks best that day 🤗 I will sometimes grab olives and cheese, too!
Granville Market, is a great little adventure. Think of your typical farmers market just expanded. Local food and produce. Loads of goods and shopping. Some of the vendors are not very good, such as some of the food vendors with ridiculous prices. Others offer decent goods. Go for the adventures but realize you can get better value elsewhere.
