I was told that when in Vancouver a visit to Granville Island is a must. It is.
Granville Island is not unlike Pike’s Market in Seattle, a shopping haven of affordable fruits, vegetables, fish, meats, desserts, pastries, flowers, chocolates, art, crafts, food and much more. All the public market booths are indoors and one whole end of the market is devoted to an ethnically diverse food court. The market is BUSY and there are a lot of people in one big building (so if you can’t handle crowds, this may not be a place for you). Also, if you plan to spend some time eating lunch in the market it takes quite a bit of time finding a table to sit on (after about 15 mins of searching for a seat we just found a bench and used it as a table).
It is very neat seeing all the different things that the locals have to offer regarding crafts and produce. Highly recommended half a day outing.
