Spent several hours strolling about. Shopping and eating. We made a return visit and picked up groceries at the market for our Easter dinner. It is a great market!

So much fun to walk around the market. There really is a lot to see here and lots of produce. Entertainment is fun and there are many different dining options. I will say it is not cheap at al here though and I felt it was pretty expensive to say the least. Still had fun walking around and browsing.

Love the public markets with fresh produce and food stalls. Plenty of great restaurants on the island, art shops and cafes. There's a ferry terminal on the island for easy access to downtown!

Being health conscious, we were delighted to find the fresh market on Granville Island.... with the most amazing fresh vegetables, smoked sammon, cheeses, olives, salads, breads, herbs, and numerous ethnic entries ready to enjoy.... Including fresh squeezed orange juice. After a wonderful lunch browse the many stores and boutiques.

I genuinely enjoy wandering around Granville Island, I love walking around the water and the stalls but seriously I enjoy being with the people I am with more. For the most part it is overpriced if you like to people watch this is the place to be, but remember there are a number of amazing walks close by.

Such a lovely, unique setting. The shops on this island carry unique, one of a kind jewelry, pottery and clothing by local artists. Lots of eateries to satisfy that special craving.

Take the water taxi across to Granville Island for a day of shopping and people watching. Buy fresh fruit, breads and cheese, chocolates, and don't miss the fresh flowers. In April the hydrangeas were incredible. Shop in one of a kind stores for a unique gift, or treat yourself! We bought globe grapes the size of a ping pong ball... More

loved the shops that offered a variety of different items, market not as good as some others; chicken pie with puff pastry disappointing in terms of vegetables and meat for the price ($11)

Very cool market, a good way to grab some dinner and spend an evening. Maybe research some events happening, I hear they have a good comedy show
