Contrary to what I wrote in my earlier review...

... the kitchen staff no longer put the condiments on the hotdogs for you. Instead, the relish is just in some open containers on the counter, which doesn't seem as hygienic to me. Given that, I don't buy hot dogs here any more.

Love this place – only problem is you must be patient when parking – the market itself is full of surprises – like most markets it's a little expensive but it's of great value – Lots of choices for food lots of gift ideas and if you venture outside of the market you might be lucky enough to see some...

Granville Island Public Market, an amazing place that pretty much has the most amazing selection of food stands. The variety, quality and amount of fresh fish at this market too. I think you have to try pretty hard to get a bad hotdog when anywhere near to Canada or America, and this market was no exception, here's a pretty impressive... More

One of the tasty burgers in Vancouver for sure. My husband went to college on the island and spent his early 20's eating burgers at the Market Grill. Years later and we drive in from the valley just to have a burger (and do a little shopping of course!) and people watch. Great service, fast, friendly and the food is... More

What a marvelous time we had at the market. It provided our meal for two evenings of local fare served picnic style. I would suggest looking for local produce, fish, etc. a couple of places bake breads at the market. Something for EVERYONE!!

Looking for a really, really good burger? This place is like the shake shack of vancouver, but better. The portions were sizeable, the service was fast and efficient and the salads were great too. If you are spending an afternoon on Granville and looking for a good lunch, this is it. They only took cash or debit ... no credit... More

Although like a lot of locals, I avoid Granville Island during cruise ship season, I'm here a lot during the rest of the year. With all of the great food choices on the Island, it may seem funny that my usual choice if I'm here at lunchtime is a hot dog from Market Grill. What can I say? They're really... More

I guess most tourists to Vancouver visit Granville Island and the market, and we were no exception. We went on a Sunday lunchtime, and ended up spending the whole afternoon there. The market was a great collection of food and craft stalls, and it would be hard not to find something to everyone's taste. There was also a mixture of... More

So much to see and experience! Some gift waiting for you! Experience fresh vegetables, flowers, jewellery made, brewery pubs, fishing and pleasure vessels, restaurants of quality food and views. Safe but very limited parking, some pay others only 3 hrs. will tow! hard to find parking and some one should be there at entrance advising people where if any parking... More

We were told to go here by one of the market stall holders - we had breakfast and the Beltch sandwich is the best ever! Basically a BLT with egg and cheese - not at all stodgy, but a great way to start the day and it kept us going for the whole whale watching trip. Coffee was a bit... More
