Great visit! I enjoyed the Market and the restaurants ... I enjoyed the Fishing Company and the Sandbar ... The sandwich in the market was not bad with the peanut butter sauce was very good. Definitely a place to visit!

If you like little shops and eateries. This is where you want to visit. It will probably take you a few hours to enjoy this island. Limited parking, Take a taxi would be ideal.

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
