I mean Granville Island market of course. If you live in the main part of Vancouver, it’s hard to avoid, particularly on a rainy weekend.

Inside at Granville Island market

Well yes, now that you mention it, pictures very much like these ones have been taken by lots of people over the years (in fact, if you look closely at the exterior shot, there’s one of them being taken). But hey, bits are free.

By the way, while the selection at the market is excellent and some of it is good, the produce in particular is nothing special, and everything is severely overpriced. Having said that, the buskers are good, the atmosphere is very pleasant, and I’m seriously fond of the seriously-fattening goodies at La Baguette et l'Echalote bakery.

The produce may be nothing special, but it's hard to find better prepared meats than those at the Oyama Sausage Factory. Their duck prosciutto, for example, makes the whole trip to the market worthwhile.

I love the rainbow-sided Aquabus. I have a picture of it just getting underway under that same bridge, from when I visited Granville Island some years back. Is it still called the Aquabus? Looks a bit different. Can't quite tell from the photo here.

My first job was at a tiny software company[1] with an office above an art gallery on Granville Island. It was a little like having an office in the middle of an amusement park. Great for getting fresh food at lunch time. Not so great for my co-workers who drove cars to work and had to park them blocks away.
