Inside Net Loft at Granville Island

I’ve always admired Granville Island for its balance of functionality and flare. Though the Granville Island Public Market is certainly a spectacle for tourists to experience, the local people of Vancouver are actually the “bread and butter” of the market business. We do our grocery shopping here. We plan our dinner parties here. We bring […]

Oh Canada!

Although July 1 falls on a Tuesday this year, Vancouver hasn’t held back in the slightest for their to Canada Day celebrations.

Sake: Cold or Hot, Sip or Shot?

I’ve actually tasted the sake from Artisan Sake Maker before. On more than one occasion, in more than one Japanese izakaya bar.

The Best Fish and Chips are on Granville Island

I’d love to have a bird’s-eye-view of Granville Island. Our signature red Vancouver Foodie Tour t-shirts would look like little dots leading clusters of people from Edible Canada to the Granville Island Public Market. From a bird’s-eye-view, the pedestrian traffic in and around the Granville Island Public Market would look similar to bees around a […]

Kid-Friendly Granville Island

Summer means a lot of things to a lot of different people. Regardless of what the extended sunshine means to you, be it patio season, travelling season, or biking to work, one difference we all see in summer is…kids! Though we’re blessed with things to do in Vancouver, from outdoor festivals to fireworks competitions, filling […]

This Summer, Everything Will Be Different

The spirit of summer is in the air – I’ll go right out and say it. The hustle and bustle isn’t just within the Granville Island Public Market, but spans from Bridges Restaurant, past Edible Canada, to the eastern shores at the Granville Island Hotel. Whether you’re joining us for our Granville Island Market Tour […]
