Granville Island Market Tour

This superb tour provides visitors with the opportunity to explore and experience British Columbia’s most visited and best-known public market with a knowledgeable guide leading the way to the hottest spots.

With more than 12.2 million visitors a year, Granville Island can be a very busy place so why not put yourself in the hands of a friendly guide and learn the secrets and best places to shop.

This peninsula, located close to Downtown Vancouver under the south end of the Granville Street Bridge, was once home to a range of industrial manufacturers but is now a tourism hotspot.

And at its epicentre is the Granville Island Public Market, which houses a fascinating assortment of colourful stalls, showcasing unique homemade products and the very finest in gastronomic delights.

The diverse array of vendors include green grocers, butchers, bakers, fishmongers, cheese specialists, sweets stands and casual eateries. Just outside the market are many local artisans too, including a wine shop, a micro roaster of organic coffee, the Netloft and Canada’s only artisan Sake distillery.

On this tour, you’ll experience the vibrant culture and history of the area, savour a cornucopia of fine foods – from local cheeses and top-quality charcuterie to sourdough bread, to melt-in-your-mouth donuts, and get plenty of local insight from your guide.
