The bustling isle just across the Burrard Inlet from Downtown Vancouver is the second-most visited attraction in all of Canada, following just behind the iconic Niagara Falls. And as a centre of culture and local fare in the city, Granville Island offers mouthwatering fine foods and produce from dozens of independent farmers and artisans, as well as several galleries showing off dazzling works from local artists.

This two-hour food tour covers the smorgasbord of gastronomic delights spanning the sights across Granville Island. Guests can hobnob at the chaotic Public Market, where the city’s chefs find fare to fill their menus. The catch of the day is sold alongside artisanal cheeses, melt-in-your-mouth donuts, and top-notch fair trade coffee. The renowned Edible Canada restaurant is just steps away, which offers scrumptious dishes created with local ingredients. And down each road, visitors will discover dozens of boutiques offering everything from fine jewellery to freshly carved totems.

The variety of sights will give visitors a heaping slice of local life and help them inhale Vancouver one delicious bite at a time. This food tour has the Canadian Tourism Commission stamp of approval as one of the unique Canadian experiences that represent the nation. The Granville Island Market Tour was one of the first experiences to be inducted into the Canadian Signature Experiences collection in 2011.
