“Great day or evening”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2012

Some fantastic restaurants like the Bridge House and awesome shopping. Organic food and street performers make this place great for kids and everyone in between. Lots to do.

“Have to go here”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2012

After hopping off the big bus at the beach area, we took a ferry to Granville Island and once we got there, it was a cute little market with a lot of food, fruits, art, etc. Basically everything that you can think of is here. Its a cute little place to check out.

“Great lunch spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2012

We spent several hours on Granville Island. We grabbed lunch from several of the vendors and watched street performers while we ate. It was a fun way to start our visit to Vancouver.

“Lots of great food and art at the market”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012

The Granville market had the work of lots of talented artists. The food market was also worthwhile. It was delicious. A must stop off spot.
