Vancouver Canada – Granville Island public market

To the sea

To the sea

The public market is one of the highlights of any visit to Vancouver.  Not only is it a great place to buy food, there are many restaurants, shops and other attractions.  You can spend the entire day just lounging around.  Drinking coffee and eating a muffin for breakfast, having salmon for lunch, and crab for dinner.  And shopping or people-watching in between.  And the view of the sea and the mountains is unrivaled.

  1. Wah no wonder you like it so much. The pubic market was PACKED with people & strollers like a sardine can when we were there in late August few yrs ago. One could hardly walk, let alone see any floor space!!! I think August is the peak of the tourist season?

  2. When I’ve been here before, which was usually in the summer, it was very crowded. It was great being able to walk around and not have to think about the crowds. And I was there around 900am which isn’t too early. Also had the best muffin I’ve ever had at the shops in front of the market. It was huge. Had just come out of the oven. The price? Three dollars. Was worth twice as much.

  3. If it’s crowded in the Summer I wonder if the locals really shop there or it’s mostly tourists? Reminds me of the market in Seattle…
