Will be making about a three day trip to Vancouver and then Victoria. Am very interested in the Granville Market, but I'd probably need to go on Friday or Sunday, maybe around noonish. Which day is better? Is it like many markets where Saturday is the best day or is it pretty consistent? How does it compare to Pike Place Market in Seattle or the Ferry Building Market in San Francisco? How long is the ferry trip to and from?
Also, I'll probably have one dinner and maybe one lunch in Vancouver and one lunch and dinner or more in Victoria. What would you choose? Would prefer something that would be difficult to find outside of Vancouver or that emphasises some unique aspect of Vancouver. Upscale or ethnic is totally fine.
