“Colourful and diverse”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 13, 2012

Well worth a visit to see. Do try the super foods/fruits/vegs in the food halls. The gift shops etc are of a good quality too. Live music too. Do the locals know lucky they are to have this fabulous provision? We could have spent the whole day there just going round and round the different stalls & shops! Fun to get there via the little boasts that ply the river, for a very reasonable sum.

“Visited for dinner...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 13, 2012

We walked around Granville Island before selecting a nice place to have dinner. We weren't able to see much because it was dark, but the shopping area was cute and touristy.

“Foodies Delight”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 12, 2012

Every tour bus stops here. Very busy in cruiseline season. A few good buskers, excellent food market and a great view of all the new high-rises across False Creek. Some excellent artisanry.
