Once Vancouver's industrial manufacturing area, Granville Island is now home to many local artists, restaurants, theatres, a hotel and the Emily Carr University of Art and Design. There's something for everyone here, but if you're dreaming up a romantic meal at home, there are a few key places you'll want to visit. First, head to the Public Market for all the fruits, vegetables, baked goods, meat, and cheeses. There are also a handful of seafood vendors inside the Public Market, but if it's oysters, lobster, crab, or mussels you're after, you'll want to visit the Lobster Man. You'll find them in a separate building from the Public Market. If you're after incredible charcuterie, head to Oyama inside the Public Market. Located in False Creek, an adventure to Granville Island is just a boat or bus ride away from Downtown. A water taxi ride adds to the charm of the excursion.
