It's an old industrial island that was transformed to meet the changing times. It's now a hippie place with chic restaurants and cool gadgets. Definitely worth a visit although the traffic can be maddening on the weekends.

Arriving on a Saturday are the shops and restaurants in the market open weekends? If so what hours? Also if we are staying downtown what's the most cost effective way to get to Granville?
