One of my favorite places in the city of Vancouver, BC is Granville Island. Which isn’t really an island. It’s basically a peninsula across False Creek from downtown. Originally it was called “Industrial Island” but because it is located under the Granville Street bridge, the name Granville become more popular. Whenever I visit, I always have stop by Granville Island Tea Company
for some freshly steeped tea. The easiest way to get there is to hop on the water taxi. For those of you with children, they have a whole building called the “Kids Market”.
The whole area is full of unique stores and art galleries. One of the stores is Ten Thousand Villages, and it’s all fair trade merchandise. The items below were made in the Philippines. If you are looking for a unique gift, you should check out the website.
The rest of the pictures were taken inside the public market.
