Granville Island, Public Market, Restaurants & Bars - What's Open (updated July 9)

June 30, 2020

A complete list of merchants open for business is below. Additionally some businesses on the Island do have online sales, please check below and individual websites in our directory Granville Island Directory

Masks are not currently mandatory, however the Chief Medical Officer has recommended them as an added layer of protection. We encourage all visitors to Granville Island to wear a non-medical mask, in particular in the Public Market, where it can be hard at times to maintain 2 metres at some pinch points -  and of course, continue to maintain a safe 2 metre (6 feet/2 adult arms length) distance from anyone in the Public Market and across Granville Island.



The Public Market, Net Loft, Creekhouse, Maritime Market & Marina, Railspur Artisan Alley, artist studios, Kids Market (ballroom closed) and playgrounds, including the Splash Park (10am - 6 pm daily) are now open. Unfortunately, we do not anticipate that the City of Vancouver's False Creek Community Centre will open this summer. CMHC-Granville Island  has installed portable washrooms to replace those in the community centre.  

Granville Island Public Market remains open 9 am - 5 pm daily ( 9 am - 6 pm July 10th ) to support our merchants who wish to be open, and for essential grocery shopping to support Vancouverites in accessing fresh, healthy foods. Parking is temporarily free.

The Public Market merchants ask that you support them and their safety by please shopping alone for groceries to comply with our social distancing needs in the market. The market has stayed open for essential grocery shopping, but if you shop in groups, we have to leave people wishing to shop for groceries outside in line.  A new entry and exit protocol has been added on busier days in order to maintain social distancing. Please note: Lee's Donuts and Oyama Sausage have both moved to a lineup outside their doors, the Public Market entrances are separate and more often than not, have no lineup.

Groups and tours are not permitted in the Public Market or on the Island this summer due to Covid-19 gathering restrictions. 

This is truly an extraordinary time in our global history. Thank you for supporting the small, independent businesses on Granville Island. We look forward to welcoming you and your family back to Granville Island in the near future. Please, stay healthy.
