A short ferry ride on False Creek took us to Granville Island which we had been told had a great farmers market. The fruit and vegetables were lovely and made me wish I lived there. The fresh flowers were beautiful. The crafts amazing. There was even a man who carved life size canoes. There were many food stalls selling hot... More

We went on a very rainy day and had fun inspite of rain. Artists boutique/studios fun to visit. Something very different and I enjoyed it. From town you can take water taxi...quick but fun.. Or drive over.

This is a must for a short time or a long time. Such a fun shopping experience. You need to know your prices but so much to choose from. The Brewery is a must stop. Winter Ale is my personal favorite.

I office on Granville Island so some times take it for granted. The market is simply amazing and many of the stores are on my "daily shopping list". Oyama Sausage Company makes the best sausages I have ever had. Small ferries go from the market to downtown and there are several very good restaurants. Lots of fun to be had.

The produce, meat, fish and artisan vendors make for a visual feast - as you wander around this public market. Several artists have studios here and you can watch them at work.

I love this location for a walk around and take in all the fresh produce, grabbing a coffee and snack and sit by the water and enjoy the view and people watch. Open until 7pm and lots to take in from shows and fine food. The market itself is my favorite area, the food and fruit selection is great -... More

We took the water taxi and spent several hours walking around the market and shops. Really enjoyed the atmosphere. Best to go when the weather is nice enough to spend time outdoors.
