Part crafts fair, part farmers market, part artist’s workshop, part mall, and part industrial site, Granville Island is hard to describe. But everything you could name is here: theaters, pubs, restaurants, artists’ studios, bookstores, crafts shops, an art school, a hotel, a cement plant, and lots and lots of people. One of the most enjoyable ways to experience Granville Island is to take a water taxi from False Creek over to the huge Granville Island Public Market with its stalls and booths selling produce, meats, fish, wines, local specialties, cheeses, and arts and crafts. The market is open daily 9am to 6pm. Order a latte and an enticing snack from one of the unique food counters and then stroll around the lively streets around the market, enjoying the view of the boats on False Creek, the buskers, the galleries and shops, and the kids chasing flocks of squawking seagulls. It’s a lovely way to spend a couple of hours.
