A very eclectic and historic collection of buildings and artisans - you can find all types of handmade items and it's a great place to stroll around. Wonderful food vendors - you'll find everything from fresh breads, donuts, fruits, chocolate, teas, cheese and meats - to handmade accessories and gift items. Just an awesome farmers market area.

We didn't have a GPS and had a heck of a time finding this place. It's pretty much located under a bridge but once we found it, it was well worth it. Of course the real charm here is the Indoor Public Market market for fruits and vegetables and the like but since we are not locals and were staying... More

we quite often take our dog to the island and park there. Along the seawall is an off leash dog park where he can run and play. Granville Island has many great restaurants and places to sit and enjoy a coffee. Also there is an assortment of eclectic shops. Great place to buy a gift for someone who is hard... More

We were on a Trolley Tour and hopped off here to check it out. We covered it in about 45 minutes including a stop at the brewery for a quick beer. We weren't really into shopping but were still glad we got the chance to see it.

The view of False Creek is enchanting. I always find something interesting to eat. It is worth a stroll to see the houseboats, the fishing vessels, the art galleries, the... More
