Granville Island draws some 10.5 million people each year. Rumours have it that there's some magic recipe that makes visitors long to return to the island. The Public Market is arguably the epicentre for Vancouver's culinary enthusiasm. The goods tell their own stories: strawberries straight from Fraser Valley, Okanagan cherries, fresh Coho salmon and live Dungeness crabs. It's small wonder that Vancouver top chefs are often spotted shopping here for high-quality and rare ingredients for their menus. Luckily, even the casual visitor can partake in the abundance. Several delis and restaurants feature a variety of cuisines. Slurp Japanese noodles. Nosh on Greek gyros. Grab a slice of Italian pizza. Could the vast quantity and array of food be Granville Island's secret? After all, that's certainly one way to win over fans. This video take a trip around the Granville Island Market so you can taste what makes it so special.
This video was taken in Chinatown in Vancouver, Canada last May 24, 2009. There is a fresh fish market where local residents buy alive shrimps, fish, tilapia, crabs, mussels, fresh clams, oysters, etc.
This video was taken last May 24, 2009 at the Fisherman's Wharf in Vancouver, Washington. It was low tide so you can see that the seawater is very low. On the very end of this is my daughter Shelby at the biker's path.
