Granville Island has something for the entire family; a children’s area, jewelry stores, art shops, a beer brewery, boat rentals, clothing boutique and the famous public market.

Packed with a wide variety of stores, shopping in Chinatown holds more surprises than you may expect. It’s a great place to shop for Chinese imports, furniture and clothes, unique gifts, home decor, and jewelry.

Lonsdale Quay Market boasts 80 fresh food vendors, unique retail shops, artisans, restaurants, and a boutique hotel. Festivals and community events throughout the year ensure that no two visits are the same.
