Granville Island

Adam and I took advantage of the unusually nice weather in Vancouver this weekend. We even went bowling Friday night! Saturday morning we ran some errands and then headed downtown to Granville Island. It’s one of the nicest marketplaces in Vancouver. It’s located underneath of a bridge right next to the water. It has some beautiful views of the Vancouver skyline and offer’s some delicious food! There are lots of local vendors inside the marketplace, bakeries, deli’s, specialty foods etc. It also has lots of shops around the marketplace for unique and original gifts and home decor. There are also restaurants and play areas for children. It’s a great for a lazy Saturday or Sunday, just go down and walk around the market sampling some delicious baked goods or produce. It’s one of my favorite things to do in the summer, especially when the weather is extra warm.

There is lots of things to do and see at Granville Island.

Like watch a totem pole carving..

The public market!

You definitely can’t leave without visiting Lee’s Donuts! Made fresh & oh so delicious.


Adam chose his favorite, honey dipped, and I went with a lemon filled. We shared one there and saved one for later. As in this mornings breakfast =)

There are stands full of delicious produce!


We were deciding on someplace to grab a snack for lunch, and came upon this vendor. Fraser Valley Juice & Salad.

We chose to share a small bean salad. I forget the name of the beans, but they were sooo good! It was hearty and so fresh. I could eat this every day at lunch! Adam also had a pepperoni stick from one of the deli’s.


Of course, we couldn’t go without a visit to a bakery.


We got a mini carrot cake for dessert later that night, a Biscotti to share, and Adam got two of their live bars. It was vegan and dairy free, made with delicious fruit.

Annnd who could go without sharing a gelto? It was ‘Donatella’ made with nutella. Yum.


Yup it was a beautiful day!

    LookS like a fun time! We went to the Public market while we were there on our honeymoon and loved it, but I didn’t get a donut. Guess we’ll have to go back!
