Granville Island Market ~ Vancouver's Piece de Resistance!
Each major city has their own Public Market - or three! Vancouver's is the Granville Island Market! Last week I was in Vancouver hanging around waiting for my son to have some work done with a dental specialist....and I thought ~ it's been ages since I've been -I should go check it out!
The first thing that caught my eye was a little stand that sold CHESTNUTS ROASTED ON AN OPEN FIRE! Oh my word! I waited a few minutes watching them roast and then slip into a little bag just for me! :-) It was the perfect thing to munch on on a gorgeous late autumn afternoon.
What makes Granville Island so unique is...it'a Public Market with fresh and fabulous floral bouquets....cheeses and pastas to make you drool.... AND aneclectic mix of shops, boutiques and galleries. Everything from exotic stationary, to the funky hat and lamp stores; the Maritime Market with all things ocean related: kayaks, boat rentals, marine souvenirs and of course, seafood.
My Kids always adored the Kid's Market. Oh there were many a day that my kids would hang out at the water park there and then lunch here. There's a unique selection of atypical toys, books, games, clothing, candy and adventure offer a refreshing alternative to the usual.
Granville Island is so cool with its array of arts-and-crafts studios and galleries, yummy restaurants, a yacht club and fabulous Arts Club Theatre! Staying in Vancouver for the Olympics? Hop on a water taxi and come on down!
Also home of the Emily Carr University of Art and Design, The Granville Island Hotel, B.C. Potter's Guild AND The Granville Island Brewing Company! You can find Granville Island just under the Granville Bridge, across from downtown Vancouver.
