  • I love Granville Island. There is so much to do and see down here. Love the fresh produce, fish and meats. Lots of choices for food, great place for lunch....careful of the seagulls, they are watching you. 🤭

  • A nice place to visit in Vancouver - tourists and locals mingle at the market and the shops. Fun to taste the products, produce and baked goods. The views of the city are beautiful and you can have a lovely meal on a patio with a view of the water and the sunset.

  • I used to go to school there at Emily Carr. I love and miss the island so much. Lots of activities, beautiful sights and awesome ambiance

  • Absolutely awesome place! Love to come here for the beautiful views and great food at the Public Market. Parking here is very limited so weekends are extremely busy. But if you manage to find parking life is good. One of the highlights of Vancouver.

  • Great place to bring family and friends. You can always find something to do. There are live shows and exhibits. The public market is always full of fresh food. There is no shortage of restaurants and street food to share.
