The first time I was in Vancouver I had already wanted to check out this cool place with a huge impressive public market but due to time and transportation constraints at the time, I gave up the idea and vowed to make it there next time. Next time has come and what was at the top of my agenda?
Fish and chips (and the yummiest and biggest fried oysters I’ve ever encountered) at the Granville Public Market!
Although also pressed for time this time around as we were really just passing through Vancouver on our way to Alaska (and that’s for more exciting posts to watch out for in the next few weeks). I made sure we make it there by hook or by crook! It was worth the (long) wait. Those who know me know that I love going to the market even though I am by no means considered a good cook.
I get a thrill each time I survey what’s in a market whether I am in my own neighborhood or out travelling.
This island is in the middle of the city and is physically connected to downtown Vancouver by the Granville Street Bridge. One can’t tell from there the gem that awaits them. Embodying the surrounding metro, Granville Island is matchless. Its humble origins are far from what it has become, a popular area boasting of impressive art galleries, shops, dining places and a fabulous public market that offer a wide array of fresh and cooked food (as seen above).
Let’s walk around, shall we?
I’d walk the dogs here too!
And more ducks!
Sea Village houses
And isn’t she a cutie? 🙂
