Favorite Food Shops in Vancouver, Victoria, and Tofino?

Morton the Mousse | Jun 2, 2008 08:21 PM

SF Hound here. Will be spending two weeks chowing down in BC for my honeymoon. My restaurant itinerary is solid, thanks in no small part to this board. Now I'm just looking for the best food shops for snacks and picnic supplies - cured meats, smoked fish, cheese, fresh fruit, preserves, nuts, chocolate, etc. I love little shops that specialize in just one or two things but do them incredibly well. I wont have access to a kitchen, though I will have a fridge.

In Vancouver, I'd love to hear about places on Granville Island. Am also open to places within walking distance of Salt Tasting Room, Vij's, and the Bins. If there is anything really special that is worth a detour, I will have a car.

Tofino is pretty small, so I'd love to hear about any worthwhile shops in the area. Same goes for Victoria.

In terms of market schedules, I'll be in Van Fri, Sat, Sun, in Tofino Tues, Wed, Thur, and in Victoria Sat, Sun, Mon, Tues, Wed.

Thanks in advance. I do promise to provide you with some detailed reports of my most memorable dining experiences.
