Granville Island Public Market, Vancouver Reviews
A must when you're in Vancouver Corporate type or bohemian, you have to visit Granville Island. Alright the bohemian types are going to enjoy it more, but it's still a great place to check out. This is an active, almost all local, place to visit in Vancouver. Filled with everything from a fantastic public market, to local eateries, entertainment and micro breweries. It is an excellent location to spend several hours and just walk around and visit. We really did not have time to visit many of the theaters which was the only disappointment. From the flyers it looked as if there were some great local plays and performances...we will definitely allow more time on our next trip.
A great place to visit if you are in Vancouver. Lots to see and do and shop. The prices are higher than in other stores, but the variety and authenticity of the stores and the people who run them is worth the trip to Granville island. Having said that it is one of the top tourist attractions in Vancouver, but you can see why if you go there. There's also great views, musical entertainment etc, if you don't want to buy anything. Also a good selection of fast food for lunch/dinner.
The market is full of awesome treats and discoveries! The bakeries don’t have the best quality treats. The Benton Cheese has some very good quality cheese. We picked up the best Concord grapes from this market! Lee’s donuts are a must! The mini bread loaves are very good and perfect for a picnic. Awesome pickles in the middle of the market. Great stop along the way for your journey.
This place has my heart. What a beautiful place right in centre of the city. If you're a food freak and love to try different varieties of food then just come here for the evening and I bet, it'll worth spending time. You can start you meal with appetizers and end with sweet deserts. You can even shop local seafood, grocery and fresh fruits. You can eat freshly baked bread, brownies, donuts and handmade gelato. After spending time here, you can even catch ferries to lots of different places like Science world and others.
While well known for its artists and craftsman options, this place is a summer's delight in the water play area. There is a place for younger kids and toddlers and a fun water slide and many water play activities like a tall water spout, hoses with small pipes to spray friends and many small water features where children have a blast splashing about and running around. The hardest part is getting the kids out of there ! And this is free. This was a treat to remember as the last week of summer vacation. The public market offers farmers market style fresh food and hand made eats and crafts. There are tons of fresh made buns, chocolates, cheese and pastries and of course fruits and veggies. This week we also enjoyed the open air musicians and the street fair stalls with unique handmade gift items.
