This is great! The produce is magnificent! Come hungry as there are lots of places to get something to eat. If you are looking for unique gifts, this is the place. It's an opportunity to support local artisans.

Of course, you would have to have a lot of money. Even with the favorable exchange rate, retail prices are very high so there are actually no bargains on name brand merchandise. The market was wonderful. It has prepared foods, veggies, fruits and miscellaneous merchandise.

It wasn't quite what we expected but a good place to choose from a range of food and go shopping. We enjoyed wondering around and taking pictures but a bit pricey for us.

The island has it all. Fresh fruits, vegetables and meats at the market place. Great restaurants with so much fresh seafood you could eat there a month and never have the same dish twice. There are lots of shops with local wares and Canadian specialties....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
