    Yummy options for varied dietary needs!
    This is a great place to try different cuisines and buy fresh food to cook at home. Lots of interesting options for lunch and dessert, including gluten free options. I will definitely visit this place next time I’m in Vancouver.

    Everything you need under one roof
    Public market used by locals (which is a great sign) and tourists. Every kind of food under the sun plus artisan jewellery art etc. Loads of choices for eating absolutely something for everyone. Well worth the trip

    Highly recommend this market
    Best public market I’ve visited. Originally thought this was going to be a tourist trap but it’s phenomenal. The food options are extensive - and in my opinion, mostly high quality. You can find everything from baked goods to curries to deli food to pretty much anything else. Feel like a coffee or a fresh juice? They’ve got that too! There’s also vendors selling things like seasonings/salts, chocolates, souvenirs, etc. Most days, there are buskers outside, so you can sit down with your food, enjoy the view and some local talent as well. Easy to access via ferry or walking, you can drive but parking appears to be limited.

    Everything, and it's all delicious!
    I was lucky enough to visit on a Tuesday afternoon in April, and the Market was already busy...I imagine it's swamped in tourist season. But with good reason: you can get great bread, cheese, fruit, pastries, and everything else under the sun. It's a lovely place, with all the standard tourist fare but, because there's so much custom floating through, also weird stuff like a shop all about pickles.

    Best Reached by Ferry
    Our friends who had visited this place highly recommended it but warned us about parking both on the island and near ferry stations, especially given this being a Canadian long weekend holiday. We walked about two miles from our hotel to the Aquatic Museum ferry stop. For me the ferry ride there after a short wait was the highlight of this visit. The Public Market was jam packed with tourists. The cavernous interior features a great variety of eateries, souvenir shops, bakeries, juice bars, butcher shops, etc.,very similar to many large food hall and farmer markets we had seen elsewhere in California, New York, Montreal, and Europe.

    fun area to shop & eat
    what a great job they have done with this old industrial area.....we were their during a holiday weekend, but I can imagine how busy this is during the summer. Lots of venders will all kinds of items, both unique and also mass produced. The large Market has all the food you could want, to fill your stomach or your fridge. If we visit for a week, my first stop will be this Market to get fresh food for our stay

    Full day at Granville Island Market
    Today I had the opportunity to visit this amazing Market, full of attractions and activities to do. I had booked a Paddle tour and then I decided to explore its features. There are so many shops and restaurants that it gets hard to choose what to buy. You can find expensive stuff, but also many other things to buy in budget. It’s a must to visit this great place.

    Worthy of a 1/2 day visit
    There is a huge market with fresh food, merchandise & restaurants, also specialty stores. Perfect place to visit for 1/2 a day. The market place opens before the specialty stores; don't go too early if you are going for the specialty stores. We took an Uber there, but you can get there by aqua bus also.

    Great market for foodies
    We visited Granville Island whilst we were in Vancouver and had a really good time. There is lots of fresh food available, but some really good places that serve food as well. The Oyama Sausage Company was particularly good. The member of staff who served us was very helpful. He helped us choose what meats to buy, and the meat we had was delicious. The bagel shop (Siegel’s Bagels) was also very good- they did a very good breakfast bagel. Lee’s Donuts also does very good donuts. Overall, I’d definitely recommend a trip here as the food is very good and it is very close to downtown Vancouver.

    Absolute “Must Visit”
    What an amazing place. My friend Am I spent almost 6 hours wandering the markets - an eclectic mix of shops and fresh produce. Parking was cheap and plentiful as were prices. Obviously some of the higher end artisan stuff was a bit more expensive, but pieces are one offs and workmanship stunning. Thoroughly recommend it as a “must visit” when in Vancouver

A must do while in Vancouver. It was easy to get the the island by Aquabus from Hornsby Street. We walked through the market first to get some soft drinks to carry with us, and see what was available. It was very busy at lunch time. Since it was a national holiday there were lots of local families. After walking around and visiting a few galleries we got some pastries at the market and ate outside. A quick water taxi ride back and we were on our way.

I love the Granville market! I have been twice with my family and went just recently in January 2024 with my boyfriend. There are lots of cute shops to walk in a peek around. What I love most is the food. Salmon and capers, ramen, raspberry tart, maple everything, you name it! I love to sit in the food court and try as many things as I can. Everyone who works in the market is extremely friendly too. If you walk down to the docks, you can take a short boat bus over to the other side and walk around downtown Vancouver too! Always such a fun time here:)

If you only have time to visit one place in Vancouver make it Granville Island.
We took the ferry here from Yale Town and it was just the perfect day.
Great food, great crafts, and a lovely setting.
Try everything, then, if the weather suits, step outside on the terrace to eat your bounty and admire the views.
But leave time - it was only as we left we realised there was so much more to this place than the food halls – there are so many other buildings with arts and crafts scattered around here, and we wished we’d spent the whole day here.

Granville Island Public Market is quite an exciting place to visit if you love food! There are countless stalls selling all types of food, from fish and meat to vegetables and lovely fruit, like berries and other exotic delights! There are many other shops as well selling all kinds of merchandise. Perfect place to have lunch! We caught the Aquabus from downtown and it only took a few dollars and a few minutes to get to Granville Island. Wonderful experience.

Super fun place! Glad we visited the Public market! The clam chowder with the filo cover was oh so good and kept us warm on a cold day. Also had lots of almond croissants, pastries, smoothies, coffee from all the stalls (can't remember them all).
Prices are decent and although we went during the week, it was still busy and a fun vibe. Only thing I wished was that there was more indoor seating. We had to eat out clam chowder outside and it was kind cold. I'm sure during the summer it's quite nice outside though. Overall it's definitely a must do when in Vancouver. Uber drop off and pick up was easy, plenty of bathrooms hahaha

Very crowded. Nice stuff but very pricey. I don’t enjoy visiting this market. There are some good restaurants inside if you’re willing to face the crowds and pay the high prices

Our large group were on a day trip and the tour guide allocated an hour to go through the entire market. First impressions were omg look at the fresh fruit, pastries, veggies and delicious foods..
The donuts are delicious and not too be missed. Coffee is great too. A prime Lunch stop or mid afternoon or morning for brunch. Loads of options. Also the stores offer unique purchases away from food. A great experience and you definitely need more than an hour.

An amazing selection of goods, fruit and bakery items for sale. The fruit displays were awesome. Fresh Cherries and Strawberries. We did not have enough time as we were on a tour but you could spend a day there. You can have lunch and listen to music.
