Granville Island Public Market

This vibrant market is a colourful mix of crafts, delicious fresh food, scrumptious bakery goods and gourmet cheese, a playground for foodies and shoppers alike.

Spanning 3,900 square metres, this unique public space also hosts an additional Farmers Market from mid-June through to October, where local vendors hawk a variety of fresh produce, much of which is harvested from small, family-run farms.

Both locals and out-of-towners can be spotted browsing the goods at this expansive market. Pick up a sandwich and head over to the patios and parks nearby for a relaxing picnic. Bask in the sun and feed some hungry seagulls with your leftover crumbs while doing a spot of people-watching. With so many things to see and do, sometimes even an entire afternoon isn't enough to explore all that the market has to offer. Buskers, jugglers, and balloon artists add to the energetic atmosphere.

Granville Island, previously known as Industrial Island, has transformed since the 70s, morphing from a gritty industrial park of ironworks, slaughterhouses, and sawmills into today's bustling urban oasis packed with upmarket waterfront restaurants, theatres, galleries, studios, eclectic shops, cafés, and a market extraordinaire. Browse the rails at trendy boutiques with original clothing designs and accessories, custom leather fashions, and handmade jewellery and crafts, all within the island.

Families with children need not worry about them getting bored. There is plenty to keep little ones occupied. Canada's largest free outdoor Water Park is great for a hot summer's day while the Kids Market right next door sells crafts, games, food and much more all aimed at children. A variety of performing arts festivals, family-oriented shows and events take place all year-round on Granville Island. Check the website for a schedule and details.

Located on the south shore of False Creek, the island is connected to the rest of the city by a causeway. Parking is limited, so the best way to visit is by bicycle, ferry, bus or on foot from downtown. Arrive early to avoid the crowds if visiting during the weekend.
