First went here 11 years ago. Fewer seafood places now and more bakery and coffee. Interesting entertainment venue. See this in the evening.

Have been twice and really enjoy the atmosphere and shops. Lots of great food options including gelato! Hard to get to by car, Skytrain and bus. Best way to visit is the WaterBus which drops you off right near the action.

This is a nice way to spend an afternoon in the Vancouver area...Granville Island has nice shops and plenty of restaurants. The public market is a lot of fun...plenty of fresh food items to enjoy for lunch or to take home.

Take the bus from Granville street near the city station to the Island. Loads of food options and fresh produce and an amazing feel. A must do,

Went on a weekday, first time for a very long time. It was still busy, but not as busy as it is on Sundays. I love all the fresh baking, seafood and just the general feeling of abundance.

Fabulous foodstuffs in a farmer's market-like indoor setting, with amazing cheeses and all sorts of fine things to at and for cooking. Eye-popping variety and high quality. Lovely waterfront setting, with water taxis coming and going constantly. Many lovely and interesting shops, all surrounded by...More

Granville Island & Fairview
One of the favoured neighbourhoods for a day out,
Granville Island's packed theatres and art studios,
hobby shops and book stores, restaurants and bars, all
offer a plethora of activities and entertainment
options, leaving no one bored. The highlight of the
area is the Fisherman's Wharf, where the seagulls
overhead and the smell of the sea invigorate its many
visitors, some of who are there to shop the fresh
