We merely walked through within an hour. There are some interesting quaint stores which are worth visiting. We didn't buy anything though.

Well worth a visit to the craft shops and the vibrant indoor market. Would recommend going by water taxi as there is a lot of traffic congestion.

Took the short ferry over from English Bay to check out all the outdoor market, quirky shops, souvenir places and huge awesome indoor food hall/market. Would definitely recommend if you are a foodie and / or looking for gifts

Amazing place and delicious food art and a beautiful view to complete the great experience! Fruits, olive oil and different meats can be found - and also souvenirs.

Walked down to the Island from our Hotel on Broadwey, which was a bit of a walk but OK. Visited for lunch and took the little ferry around the bay. Good choice of food to eat inside and out, excellent market and if you want to do some shopping whilst on holiday this is the place.
