What’s the Market, Spirits, and Shops Tour?

A MAJOR CANADIAN DESTINATION

Granville Island is most known for its Public Market — it’s one of the country’s most-visited destinations. But there’s more to this little stretch of seashore than those colourful food stalls. 

Locals and tourists also gravitate to Granville Island for its craftspeople, art, theatre, and gorgeous views.

A BIG DEAL IN THE ARTISAN SCENE

This tiny neighbourhood is teeming with craftspeople — from art to booze to clothing and more. Meet the artists whose work appears in homes around the world.

Sip on libations from a craft brewery or Canada’s first sake maker — made from sake rice grown in BC. Browse through the designs at Granville Island Broom Co. and Vancouver Studio Glass. There’s lots to be inspired by!

ICONIC VANCOUVER SIGHTS

Set on False Creek with boats all around, you’ll have beautiful views across the water. Take a peek at the houseboats and imagine a floating life.

With art everywhere, your eyes will be constantly entertained — especially when they catch sight of the six concrete silos painted like people.

“The Market, Spirits and Shops Tour was phenomenal. If you’re wanting to learn about Granville Island’s artisanal food and booze scene, this tour is it. Our guide was so knowledgeable, she made it a fun experience. I definitely would not have had the opportunity to try so many food and booze without doing the tour.
