Located under the Granville Bridge and accessible by waterbus, bicycle, bus, or car, the island hosts a very popular market.
The colourful displays present the world's cuisines, but also the best regional products: fresh fruit and vegetables, delicious local berries, pastries, jams, cheeses, seafood, and more. A food-lover's paradise, it is also an opportunity to taste maple syrup and tea from the Granville Island Tea Company, or the beer produced on the island by the Granville Island Brewing Co, the first microbrewery in Canada. Artisans and independent retailers, jewellers, glassblowers, sculptors, and other artists of all kinds have also set up here, and it is likewise the location of the internationally renowned Emily Carr University of Art & Design.
In the evening the island hosts independent theatre companies who regularly programme classical and contemporary plays. Before returning to your hotel, order some fish and chips to take away or any of the delicious dishes made in the food trucks.
