One of Vancouver’s most popular attractions is the Granville Island Public Market. Charming little ferries take visitors from downtown across False Creek to this sibling of the more famous Pike Place Market in Seattle. It’s easy to explore on your own, but it’s more fun (and more efficient) to take a guided tour. We reserved two of 15 spots on a two-hour Vancouver Foodie Tour, which included tastings at nine different vendors offering everything from coffee to produce to cheese. My favorites included an elegant “farmers harvest” bowl with Chioggia beet slices, roasted corn, creamy hummus and gravlax at Edible Canada; superlative charcuterie from Oyama Sausage Co., including black truffle salami and coppa sausage infused with locally brewed sake; and an astonishingly light honey-dip doughnut from Lee’s Donuts. Tracy, our lively guide, kept the pace brisk but not rushed.
