Granville Island Public Market is a great way to spend a sunny or rainy or cloudy afternoon. It's very family friendly, but also great if you're by yourself or with a friend. There are enough shops and marketplaces to entertain people of all ages. The food is always great and there are many options no matter your food preference. Parking can be a complete nightmare, but it's worth it.

We headed to Granville Market from downtown Vancouver using the bus #50. It was a nice short ride and easy to get to. The market is full of different local foods and it was definitely difficult to choose what to eat. The washrooms were under construction but it was easy to find another. Watch out for the rather large seagulls. I suggest walking around before you decide on what to eat, to ensure you get what you want. The items were inexpensive and delicious.

One of my favorite public markets in the world. Beautiful displays of food, fresh and prepared. Come and have a lunch...some tables to sit at. If it's sunny, make a picnic. Take the ferry over from the West End. Enjoy the water.

Enjoyed this market a lot. We went on a rainy day which was a good time cause it is all indoors. There is a lot of fresh produce, deli, bakeries etc to see. Some of the stores also offer you tastings which is always great :) there is a good selection of food to eat for lunch also. Happy we went and definitely recommend it to my friends and family :)

You might not think a public market merits a special trip, but Granville Island is something special, a vibrant combination of food stalls, florists and restaurants, set in a former industrial area that's now home to upscale shops, brewpub and live theatres. Specialty tea shops, cheese mongerers, pasta makers and hundreds of others put out enticing wares, and are generous with samples and recommendations. If you're not hungry when you arrive -- you will be before you're finished.
