    After the release, my favorite wine to pick up at Liberty Wines is the Black Hills Estate Nota Bene. Such a wonderful treat!

    I love getting pate from Oyama, delicious.

  3. SandraThursday, October 28th, 2010 — 11:38am PDT

    Lee’s Donuts are a must from Granville Island…yummy!!!

  4. JamesThursday, October 28th, 2010 — 11:41am PDT

    I enjoy the Aresti Sauvignon Blanc as a great, cheap wine from Liberty. There is too much good stuff and Granville Island to pick just one thing!

  5. Teresa KThursday, October 28th, 2010 — 11:51am PDT

    White wine. Specifically, I love Pinot Gris.

  6. Susan WeissThursday, October 28th, 2010 — 11:58am PDT

    A great way to benefit a worthwhile endeavour and I love Pinot Noire!!!

  7. ZombetteThursday, October 28th, 2010 — 12:20pm PDT

    We like the fresh meats Granville Island offers 🙂

  8. SarahThursday, October 28th, 2010 — 12:25pm PDT

    So hard to choose! But foccacia from Duso’s has got to be up there – so crispy/chewy/yummy.

  9. ShawnThursday, October 28th, 2010 — 1:10pm PDT

    Always shop there. Love to join.

  10. HollyThursday, October 28th, 2010 — 1:12pm PDT

    Granville Island is always a fun way to spend an afternoon! It would be so great to attend this event (and Especially seeing that it proceeds the SPCA!).

  11. AnneThursday, October 28th, 2010 — 1:16pm PDT

    Pumpkin donuts from Lee’s Donuts, sadly they are only available in October.

  12. RobinThursday, October 28th, 2010 — 1:35pm PDT

    I love picking up some fresh cheese curds, bread and an apple and eating them outside the Granville Island Market.

  13. MichelleThursday, October 28th, 2010 — 1:58pm PDT

    Olive bread from Terra Breads! Paired with some cheese and meats, yum.

  14. CliffThursday, October 28th, 2010 — 2:00pm PDT

    Oyama Sausage is awesome. Lee’s is also a great place to get a snack.

  15. BrendaThursday, October 28th, 2010 — 2:02pm PDT

    I shop regularly at Terra Breads, Oyama Sausage, and the Grainery. The produce places are very convenient too.

  16. FrankThursday, October 28th, 2010 — 2:23pm PDT

    My favourite thing to pick up from the Granville Island market gotta be the blueberry bread at Terra Breads.

  17. BethThursday, October 28th, 2010 — 2:33pm PDT

    Dos Fincas Cab-Merlot – they often have this on special at Liberty and I *love* it!

  22. SaraThursday, October 28th, 2010 — 4:58pm PDT

    I love driving from Langley to Granville Island. I could spend a full day wandering the market and looking at all the boutique shops. My favourite thing to do at G.I. is to visit the hilarious guys at Oyama, then stopping in at Liberty for wine then heading to my friend’s in kits to share my delicious goodies 🙂

  23. J DysonThursday, October 28th, 2010 — 5:23pm PDT

    Muhamarra from the Stock Market!

    While my wife goes shopping in the market I steal away to go to Lee’s Donuts. But being a Scotsman, I usually buy the day-olds.

  37. BruceSaturday, October 30th, 2010 — 9:01pm PDT

    Cheese, fresh fruit, turkey sausage & other meats; and some lovely wine of course. Shiraz/Sirrah is a favourite.

  41. ValerieMonday, November 1st, 2010 — 12:09am PDT

    Liberty wines had the best value shiraz ever done by Kirkland, an Australian vinyard for only 13.00!! Too bad they don’t have anymore of it. But lots of other great wines!

  47. Kyla KnowlesMonday, November 1st, 2010 — 9:38am PDT

    Any available Oregon or California pinot noir from Liberty is a terrific treat!
