Granville Island - Pubic Market

( Sightseeing / Tourist Attractions )

A Karen Brown Recommendation
Vancouver, British Columbia, V6H 3S3,

If you only have time for one attraction, don’t miss Granville Island and its fabulous acre-size Public Market. It is an amazing blend of a farmers’ market and Vancouver’s hub, yes, even for fine culinary chefs, an epicurean delight. Pyramids of luscious berries are displayed along with crisp, garden-fresh produce, local and exotic cheeses, fresh flower stands, and exotic delicacies. Just-from-the-oven bagels whiffed with aromatic freshly roasted coffee sets the mood as you suddenly realize that you can’t resist making a few purchases to nibble on. Wild fiddleheads, pine mushrooms, seaweed, stinging nettles require a kitchen so save your “loonies” ($1 coins) and “toonies” ($2 coins) for the fruit and cheese.

You can reach the island on foot, by car, by sightseeing bus or by one the colorful Aquabus or False Creek Ferry. Note parking is difficult on the island so it is advantageous to be without a car.


The #50 False Creek bus comes from Gastown in the downtown area, along Granville St., and stops just off Granville Island, at the intersection of Anderson St. and West 2nd Ave. It will let you off on the southeast side of West 2nd Ave. Look for the large Granville Island sign and the yellow and rainbow-ed Kids Market along Anderson St. northward.

For more information about Vancouver’s bus system, see www.translink.bc.ca or call (604) 953-3333.


Aquabus, www.theaquabus.com

The rainbow-coloured Aquabus  travels around False Creek with stops at the foot of Hornby St., Stamp’s Landing, Yaletown (foot of Davie St.), and Science World. The Aquabus dock on Granville Island is located between the Public Market and the Arts Club Theatre.

False Creek Ferry, www.granvilleislandferries.bc.ca

The False Creek Ferries also travel around the Inlet and stop at the Maritime Museum (west of Granville Island), the Aquatic Centre (under the Burrard St. Bridge, on the downtown side (north) of the Inlet), Stamp’s Landing, and Science World (the easternmost point of False Creek). The False Creek Ferry dock on Granville Island is located near the entrance to Bridges Restaurant.
