A fab place to buy unique gifts that are locally made. We bought fruit and coffee and enjoyed walking around, the variety is great.

We wandered around the shops and markets, having a great time. Then we just sat on benches and listened to the outdoor musicians and people watched for two hours. Concluded by taking the False Creek Ferry to Yale Town.

We took the False Creek Ferry to the Island as a sinkhole had disrupted car traffic on and off of the island. In typical fashion, we ate our way through the farmers market for breakfast and visited the shops. Fun way to spend a couple...More

If you're into that sort of this is the place for you. I personally found it very boring and lots of walking for nothing.

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
