The Wonders of Granville Public Market (Vancouver, B.C.)


One of my favorite public markets is located only three-hours drive north in Vancouver, B.C., which also happens to be one of my favorite nearby cities to visit. Granville Market is part of a much larger complex of shops, artist studios, galleries, restaurants, theaters and more, on Granville Island just south of downtown Vancouver. Finding parking is never a pleasant experience and you can easily get turned around when walking through its maze of mostly winding avenues, but these inconveniences are worth the trouble. For my wife and me, the biggest attraction on the island remains the market, stalls of produce, baked products, prepared foods, restaurants, confections, meat and seafood, cheese and beverages, among others, all in an L-shaped building, a market that never ceases to amaze—and tempt.
