Loved all the flowers everywhere. The markets were cool. The little boats that get you there are cute. Wandering around the island is lovely and free. There is a path you can follow along the rail road tracks.

Eat our way thru the market-nuts, cheese, bread and fruit! Always love visiting and finding new places to try. The Nut Merchant's maple sirracha pecans are addictive!

What a little gem. Low rise classed buildings with an amazing food market. Liberty distillery is a cool place for a quiet drink. Great tunes and Jack is a tent behind the bar. Beware of the seagulls if eating outside

There is a market under the bridge, but it is rather standard with an assortment of shops and restaurants. We enjoyed the park nearby though.

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
