Granville Island 2050 largess a vision, and recommendations, for the future in which these challenges are met, which will instigate an exciting new phase of growth and development, sustaining a passion for creativity and innovation, and rekindling the love affair with the Island for new generations. In this imagination, transformational fluctuations in transportation infrastructure decrease private automobile traffic and parking and restore the pedestrian-friendly public realm. Fall is when Vancouver really cools off and comes alive and it looks like this weekend is going to be bumping. There are so many things to do in Vancouver this weekend that we guarantee your schedule will be jam-packed. Plus, now that its fall and we're basically back to our regular constant cloud of rain, most of these events are indoors. That means you get to stay dry and have fun this weekend. Granville Island’s marquee attraction is a renowned Public Market, open seven days a week. This is where locals seek out their favorite bakers and butchers; where they shop for fruit and vegetables trucked in fresh from suburban farms; where they eye the salmon and prawns, caught hours earlier, that they will have for supper that evening. The market also includes 100 vendors selling everything from soup and soap to jams and jewelry. Even the Ocean Concrete plant, a remnant from pre-1972 when Granville Island was zoned for industrial use, recently received an artistic makeover when Brazilian artists Os Gemeos created a giant spray-painted mural on the company’s six concrete silos. The fascinating and Instagram-worthy artwork, appropriately titled Giants, is part of the Vancouver Biennale. If you only have a day to explore this maze, keep reading for just a few of my market favorites to pick. Pick up some smoked salmon, and freshly squeezed juice, the best locally sourced coffee, and you're set.
Granville Island has many magnificent shops retailing various items ranging from local artisan crafts, to farfetched works of art from renowned artists, to routine fashion and accessories. If you are looking for something unique or a keepsake from your trip to Vancouver, I would recommend looking here. There are spectacular water views, access to public beaches and parks, and delicious coffee shops and restaurants.
