    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

    Crowded, But Worth It
    We love public markets (e.g.. Seattle's Pike Street), and the Granville Public Market may be the best we've been to in the US or Canada. Fascinating and varied food offerings. Good artists. A visual feast. And, if we'd come for a meal, a real feast too. Just about every kind of food you can think of is there, fresh and beautifully displayed. A couple of pointers. First, the place is crowded. You need to be patient. Second, some vendors take only cash, which might not be a problem, but the two AMTs in the market were both out of order. Third, the place closes at 6 p.m., which is later than many of the eateries in the area.

    Crowded but Fun
    Definitely worth a visit to explore and then have a meal. I recommend sitting outside by the water after getting your food. A nice mix of food options and farmers market type stalls. Just be aware that it will likely be very crowded and that everything closes at 5 pm.

    A Must Do In Vancouver. Go With Patience And An Appetite!
    You know it's funny. We were way more bothered by the crowds at other outdoor parks and venues in Vancouver than at Granville Market. Maybe it's because we have a very good market in Cincinnati, Ohio that is always crowded, so we are use to it. We enjoyed this huge place very much. The variety of food to purchase is immense and everyone working behind the counters was lovely. We purchased items we didn't need at all (like juice caviar - basically bubble tea balls to add to sparkling wine. And way more licorice than I ever need), and practical items to back to our suite for dinner. There are also excellent places to get lunch. We had authentic Pad Thai at a place called Sen Pad Thai. For all the people, we only had to wait about 15 minutes. It was a little difficult to find a place to sit. We ended up outside on a bench. We did Uber from our hotel so we didn't have to worry about parking. I highly advise doing this.

    Getting There is a Hassle
    It was complicated getting to Granville Market from downtown Vancouver. While I enjoyed the ecclectic food and relaxing vibe, I didn't find it worth the effort just for a simple meal. Anyone who is planning to take the trip would benefit from staying a while and having the chance to explore the island.

    Must see Market.
    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.

    Worth a stop
    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.

Everything you want or need food wise is here! We taste tested a few shops here and there and each were delicious! Or grab a charcuterie cup and walk around and see all the amazing vendors there! This was a great experience during our two week vacation!

We were jumping on and off our Mobi bikes and spent a lovely hour or so between rides, wandering around the market. It's so lively and vibrant, fabulous stalls (we selected some delicious fresh fruit upon which to snack)

An amazing place with a fabulous assortment of craft items and great quality foods to buy or eat onsite although the seagulls outside are a bit savage so better to sit inside. Highly recommended to pay a visit. All local businesses too.

Granville Island on the whole is well worth a visit, however its gem has to be the market. The stalls are vibrant and full of fresh produce and the food stalls are a great place to dine and drink - there are so many its hard to chose one. We settled on A La Mode and its amazing pies. Various seating areas, some inside and some outside with waterfront views. Great value for money and would definately visit again if we ever come back to Vancouver.

Absolutely loved our visit to the market. Devoured the best fresh doughnuts I’ve ever tasted, delicious raspberries, scrumptious pies and loved seeing how bagels are made.

Nice to take our treats outside and enjoy them on a bench overlooking the water in the sunshine.

Highly recommend!

Visited: 05/06/2023.

An amazing (and huge) market filled all kinds of food, and merchandise. The market stall holders are all really friendly and happy to talk to you about their products, the entire market was busy and had street performers dotted around as well.
There is plenty to choose from, and lots of variety so you can pretty much find anything you want and need from this market. Really enjoyed our visit.

We had lunch from Gormet Wok (beef in black bean sauce with rice, and a vegetarian noodle dish), both delicious. We also treated ourselves to dessert from Stuart's The Bakers (strawberry cheesecake and chocolate turtle).

Would love to live locally to shop from here on the regular.

I could live in this market, it’s an amazing array of local foods and products! There are food options for everyone, so it’s definitely worth a visit! Keep an eye out for seating as it’s difficult to get a seat on the weekend and there will be people watching for you to leave your table on the busy days.

Granville Island Public Market is a Dynamic Mix of many choices. The day we visited, there were 3 seperate live bands. We also enjoy a meal on a Patio, which everyone enjoyed. It is not Fishermans Wharf in San Francisco but quite respectable for a Small City Market.
