We took the noddy waterbus across which is good fun & fast. Its a great place to wander round all the shops and, has a great food hall which seems to sell loads of things. You can eat here for a very good price if you want to save money....& its great...!!
You can drive there via the bridge but not worth the hassle parking is a nightmare!!!!

Entering through a hanger and underneath road bridges we were wondering what all the rave reviews were about but soon found the place to be an interesting mix of working and leisure -and a string of Canadian geese.

What a fun area. Loved the walking and enjoyed the art. The food market was a treat. Hard to decide what to eat. The fresh products looked amazing. So fun to sit outside and eat.

We had not appreciated just how many shops and restaurants are here. Please save yourself for all the different cafes and restaurants on offer here as there are too many to try for sure! What a great day out you’ll have here. We visited prior to speedboat trip but wished we had longer there so would go early next time. Best way to get there is by small boat which is around $4. We walked over the bridge but that did take a while but still nice walk.

Granville island is one of those things you have to see when you go to Vancouver. The market is especially nice where you can buy food, snacks, arts and crafts, etc. and the rest is a similar mixture of shops and activities (whale watching, etc.). I suggest looking where things are made though as we avoid supporting places that sell 'BC indigenous art' that is made in China.

What I didn't like is how confusing the place is to navigate, you end up walking behind building, missing some stores, etc. without really knowing because the place is such a maze. That might have been our fault as we tried to avoid the crows because this place gets incredibly busy on weekends.

Not to be missed. Come hungry and eat your way through the food hall, take a tasting at Granville island brewing, spend time by False Creek and take a water taxi.

We went back twice, this was such an enjoyable and fun place. The daily market was a real feast for the eyes and you could order food to take out and eat in different areas from different outlets. We did Mexican and Chinese. Some really good bars and restaurants in the area and we took the small ferry to get here. Well worth a visit and a short distance from the centre of Vancouver

We spent a part of our last day here and it was amazing so much to do from the shops to the foods. Even though we were a large group of friends there was something for everyone to enjoy

They have a market that sells variety of goods including fresh fruits & vegetables. You also get to relax outside overlooking the large body of water . Restaurants are plenty .
