On our last full day in Vancouver, we set out early from the HI-Vancouver Central to head to the market on Granville Island. I’d heard a lot about it before I even left home and now I totally see why it’s so popular.
It’s an indoor market with vendor after vendor offering up a smorgasbord of Vancouver’s finest local produce from fruits and vegetables to cheese and chocolates. In amongst these colourful displays of food, you’ll find stands offering hot and cold food, coffee and much, much more.
This is a really good spot to go if you’re looking to stock up on some really fresh and delicious food for a picnic or even just for lunch on the go. It’s also a good place to check out if you fancy purchasing some local crafts. Along with the food and drink stalls, you’ll find a number of local artisans selling their beautiful products including gorgeous jewellery and plenty more.
After the market we returned to the re-opened Space Centre to check it out and once we were done with the interactive displays in there we stepped outside to find that the weather had changed and the sun had come out.
As a result, we decided to head back down to the Waterfront and catch the bus out to Grouse Mountain, which you can read all about in my next post.
