Shopping in West Side, Vancouver

Top shopping recommendations from locals

Market
“Granville Island is a unique peninsula that has a large market, small artisan shops and restaurants to explore. We recommend the organic baked goods from A Bread Affair on Granville Island. Tom's favorite is the Pistachio-twice-baked-almond croissant. I love the cheese puff and cookies but it's hard to go wrong with the goodies here. ”
