The following article was submitted by Vancouver Foodie Tours

If you’re visiting Vancouver and you love to eat, Granville Island has got to be on your list. Home to a world-famous Public Market and an award-winning Foodie Tour, it’s here where chefs and locals rub elbows as they shop for ingredients! The Public Market is filled with over 90 Canadian artisans, many of which specialize in one thing. If you love to snack and graze, you’ll love these seriously addicting shops on Granville Island!

Bon Mano Bon

From decadence to chew, you’d never guess that Bon Mano Bon’s mouthwatering creations are vegan or gluten-free. The Chocolate Almond Crunch – a sweet and crunchy mix malted barley clusters – is totally addicting and totally vegan! The fruit gelees are silky, sweet and perfectly compact (ideal for an on-the-go treat)!

The Nut Merchant

If you love nuts, you can’t miss The Nut Merchant at the Granville Island Public Market. The Maple Sriracha Pecans combine savoury and sweet, while the Pepper Lime Cashews have sour and spice. There are over 8 varieties that make great foodie gifts, but beware – the bag will be gone before you know it!

West Coast Gourmet Snacks

If you love variety in your snacking, West Coast Gourmet puts a playful, Canadian twist on munchie snack mixes! For a savoury kick, the Mumbai Sunset Mix has almonds, cranberries, cereal, and ginger, tossed in a masala spice. Or for a patriotic snack, pick up the maple syrup bacon popcorn that’s known as “Canada’s Pride!”

Oyama Sausage Company

When you’re in the mood for something quick, decadent, and savoury, there’s no better place Oyama Sausage Company. Grab a handheld cured meat stick and enjoy it on the move – the Landjager or the Bierbeisser will do nicely. Be warned – Oyama is the most-popular shop in the Public Market, so be prepared for a wait!

The Lemon Square

Touted as a “small square of paradise,” we’ve never encountered lemon squares quite like the ones here. First, they’re really bright with lemon – apparently, it’s the fresh juice and lemon zest. Then, there’s the texture – it’s a dense, decadent bite with a bit of chew. Made with coconut, graham crumbs, BC butter, lemons and love, it’s a bite-sized sweet treat that’s packed with joy!

The Granville Island Market Tour

To dive in for a grazing meal at the Public Market, the best way to do so is on the Granville Island Market Tour! It’s an award-winning, 2-hour walking foodie tour that runs daily at 10:30am. You’ll feast your way through the market, skipping the lines at places like Oyama Sausage Company and the Nut Merchant, and you’ll get an introduction to the artisan community!
