Fun place to visit, loads of fresh food which would be great for people self catering, we thought the prices were pretty high, but the quality looked great. Also loads of food stalls for lunch, very busy so a bit of a wait. Some more shops would be good too.

Granville Island is a great place to visit - there are the many vendors in the market, the great restaurants, the kids own market and the kids waterpark and play ground, The only negatives can be the crowds particularly in the summer and of course the parking - sometimes it feels like every parking space is full - both free...

Took the water taxi to Granville Island. The market was awesome...reminded us of the one in Baltimore. From meat, fish, veggies, fruit, cheeses, pastries, etc...great place to look and taste. After the market walked around the wide variety of local shops with local crafts to items from around the world. We ate in the food court...had ok fish and chips.... More

Great to stroll around, food, galleries etc - and soak up the False Creek seaside/dock atmosphere. A fresh sea breeze kept us cool on a hot day.

Granville has some charm, but is mainly a tourist stop for food, tee shirts and gimmicky stuff. There is a passenger ferry that takes foot traffic a few minutes across the bay to the quaint town. The end point is a big farmer's market filled with produce and baked goods, as well as fresh seafood. At the end of the... More

I don't think I could get tired of Granville Island. I am the proud mom of a daughter about to start at Emily Carr, a prestigious and cutting edge Arts College, situated on Granville. The Farmers Market is amazing, although I might not eat lunch there, but Lee's doughnuts and a good latte at JJ Bean coffee is a great... More
