One of Vancouver’s most famous landmarks is Granville Island’s Public Market. With more than 12.2 million visitors per year, this is where both locals and tourists deeply immerse themselves in West Coast food culture and shop for locally produced seasonal and regional foods and select BC Wines.
Located on Granville Island is Edible Canada, a trendy 3,500 square foot 170-seat bistro and artisan food retail store is a rather unique establishment entirely dedicated to promoting the best locally based menus, wine list and retail products from British Columbia and Canada, their market-fresh seasonal cuisine determines the daily menus and fresh sheet. And there is so much more.
Edible Canada’s Tour & Events team has developed the Granville Island Market Tour, a small professionally guided two-hour walk through Granville Island’s Public Market to discover how and where Vancouver’s top chefs selectively shop for produce and source their inspired ingredients. Highly informative and infused with historical content, guests sample from the diverse group of featured vendors. For more information Edible Canada food tours, visit www.ediblecanada.com.

Matador Ambassadors, Jett & Kathryn Britnell, are two internationally published scuba divers, travel writers, photographers, shark advocates, lecturers, book reviewers, marine conservationists and devil may care adventurers. Jett also claims to be an accomplished wife whisperer. To which, Kathryn sighs with eyes turned skyward, “Where does this hedonistic bon vivant find time?”
