Shop with the locals and tourists at this bustling market located near Vancouver’s city center.

The Granville Island Public Market is an eclectic mix of arts and crafts, handmade soaps and bath products, fresh pasta and seafood, delectable bakery goods and gourmet cheese, and fast-food counters. This 42,000-square-foot (3,900-square-meter) public space has its own unique atmosphere, especially from mid-June through October when an additional Farmers Market is located here. These local vendors pride themselves on offering freshness and variety, and much of the produce is harvested on small, family-run farms. 

Locals and tourists alike come here to buy goodies. If you want to rustle up a picnic, the patios and parks nearby offer plenty of relaxing spots to people-watch and enjoy your meal. It’s easy to spend a few hours or an entire afternoon exploring this entertaining market. Street performers are a permanent presence, singing with open guitar cases ready for spare change, juggling, and creating balloon animals for the kids. 

The island itself has evolved over the years. Once a gritty industrial park of ironworks, slaughterhouses, and sawmills known as Industrial Island, it’s morphed from the 1970s into a people-friendly destination with diverse offerings. Today, these include upscale seafood restaurants on the waterfront,  burger joints, and family-style restaurants offering sandwiches and more. Find trendy boutiques with original clothing items and accessories, custom leather fashions, and handmade jewelry and crafts. It’s all available on Granville Island.

A variety of performing arts festivals, family-oriented shows and events take place year-round on Granville Island. Check the web site for a schedule and details.

Situated on the south shore of False Creek, the island is connected to the rest of the city by a causeway. Try to come by bicycle, ferry, bus or on foot from downtown, as parking is limited.

"The location was perfect and so was the hotel. It was very reasonably priced. The restaurant downstairs was Very good and the staff was very friendly. They also have underground parking at a reasonable cost. I had the harbour view room which was second to none. I will definitely come back."

"Great location and very well maintained hotel. Staff were all friendly. I only wished they had an EV charging station. The one spot shared with a sister hotel (Blu Hotel) in the back alley isn’t good enough. Other than that, I’d stay here again."
