Experience IT Review – Granville Island

Yesterday the INTERNeX family went to Granville Island. Thank you for coming!

Granville Island is a small island next to downtown Vancouver. You can go there by aquataxi or by bus. The main attraction on Granville Island is the public market where you can get delicious food and fresh groceries. Once there you can also choose to go to the Granville Island Brewery, one of the first breweries in Vancouver. There you can get good tasters.

A lot of the outside terraces were open, which made it much more lively on the streets of Granville Island. We first went to the public market, where we did a quick round. It took a long time before we found the best deal, as there are a lot of stands where they sell veggies and fruits. After we checked out several stands, I decided to be a bit more healthy and bought some nice and big strawberries. Then we checked out all the food stands of Granville Island. I keep getting amazed by their big variety and it therefore took a while before I got my bratwurst. When we filled our stomaches, we decided to go to downtown to do some shopping for the summer.

I hope you all had a great weekend and see you at PuB NiGHT!

Smart Saver

This time we have a super cheap grocery smart saver in China town for you guys.

If you want to buy watermelons for $1 or three cucumbers for $1 or maybe you are more fan of strawberries for a $1, than you should go and visit the Sunrise Market in Chinatown. The Sunrise market is located on 300 Powell street, just of Main street. They do not only sell cheap vegetables and fruits, but also basic groceries. The market is open everyday from 8am to 6pm.

Sunrise market is a asian run grocery shop, which you will notice as soon as you see the store. Asian people running around talking to each other and than there is you, standing in the middle of all of it buying your cheap grocery, couldn’t get any better.

If you go, do not let the look of the store scare you away, it is not a no frills, nesters or any of the other supermarket.

See you there

INTERNeX Canada: Smart Saver Vancouver

During one of our lunch breaks, the PR team went down to check out Sunrise Market, which is two blocks down from the INTERNeX office. Tim had recommended this particular grocer because of the cheap prices it offers and raved about it so greatly that we had to go see what the fuzz was about!

Upon arrival, we were confronted with a very crowded store front full of fruits and vegetables. All I could hear from the other girls were how cheap everything was! Here are some examples: 2 large bags of garlic for $1.00, asparagus for $1.49, cherries, cucumbers and a large bag of peppers for $1.00…. Yes, the list goes on.

The only downside is that you have to dig through a little bit because the vegetable produce wasn’t the freshest available, though Tim did warn us beforehand. Who cares when you are getting a bargain?

Address:

Sunrise Market
300 Powell St
Vancouver, BC

(604) 685-8019

Hours: Mon-Sun 7:30 am – 6 pm

You should also check out the rest of the store inside, it may look quite small but there is meat, snacks and other typical food that you may need.

Needless to say, we all went back to the office happy, each with a bag of food in our hands.

Cheers,

Queenie
