What people say

"Granville Island is a peninsula and shopping district located across False Creek near Downtown Vancouver. The Public Market is open 7 days a week from 9am until 6pm. In the 1970’s, Granville Island began its transformation from an industrial wasteland to a charming island which is now the home to more than 50 independent food purveyors and many of Canada’s best artists. Granville Island has many cultural venues and hosts numerous performing arts and cultural festivals year-round."
"Granville Island definitely thrives in the summer, with lots of artists opening up their studios so you can watch them work! Wander the winding streets and alleyways of the island and see what you can find. Lots of small gift stores, studios and souvenir shops selling indigenous art."
"One of my favorite places to go. I love Paper-Ya for cute stationary and notebooks, and I enjoy purusing the produce markets and food stalls for fresh cheese, meats, and more. Don't forget to stop at the Stock Market for freshly made daily soups!"
