Granville Island

This indoor market is incredible! Hundreds of vendors offer fresh cheese, fruits, vegetables, as well as a range of prepared bakery and deli items. There's also a sort of food court offering everything from grilled Polish sausage and Asian foods to sushi and ice cream. I opted to grab some cheese and fruit and head down to the park for a picnic dinner while watching the sunset. I also saw everything from people kayaking to dogs playing in the ocean surf. It was a great way to end a busy day.

My only regret is that I missed the artist lofts that were located right behind the market. Numerous local artists make and sell their crafts to the public during the day. They were closed by the time I got there, but from the outside they seemed amazing! It was probably for the best that they were closed since I can tell I would have spent a fortune in these one-of-a-kind galleries!
