What a fun place to visit. My fiance and I spent the better part of a day here and had a great time exploring the shops. We highly recommend spend a significant part of a day here!

I was expecting something a bit more interesting. I found most of the food offerings to be pretty poor and many of the shops and stands to be offering stuff that's available elsewhere at lower prices. The attraction, I guess is in having it all in one roof in a very nice setting. As I was attending a conference next door, it was a convenient place to have lunch but can't say I ever had a lunch that was particularly good. By the last day I was walking off the island to find something that didn't scream "tourist trap" at me.

The island is definitely worth visiting and you'll probably want to take a quick tour of the market. But coming from another major city where everything is available, I found relatively little that made me want to rush and buy.

Great coffee though.

This is a very nice market that carries almost anything you might want including artisinal food. You would also find a lot of fresh fruits that you can only see and buy in this market. There is a section where you can also dine in and choose food from the different vendors in the market. I suggest you spend a day here and complete you shopping in one place. I am not however sure if the prices are cheap or more expensive compared to supermarket prices in Vancouver.

The markets are great. There is an excellent selection of fresh produce and baked foods as well as work from local artists. A fantastic array of delicatessen foods.
Venture out of the main markets to explore the area as there is a lot to look at. Even the Ocean Concrete place has interesting art.

An easy trip from Vancouver on the number 50 bus from Downtown to False Creek. Ask the driver and he’ll tell you which stop to get off at. Note, buses require coins not notes for your fare.

The market literally has something for everyone, a sensation for every taste and works of art and craft that capture the character of Canada. Stop here for a snack, to purchase gifts to take home, sample the aesthetic of this region, or simply escape a rainy day-it's a delight
