Reviewed November 13, 2012

I like that you can shop for fresh food and flowers and explore all the venues on the island. Makes for a day!

“market with a difference”
Reviewed November 13, 2012

The problem with Granville Island is that you need really to be bable to spend a whole day here, and if you can't you kinda miss out. SO MUCH to see and do, the market only being a very small part of it. Bridges pub is a fabulous place to sit and watch the world go by on the water and have a few pleasant beverages.

“Colourful and diverse”
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...”
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.
