When do we eat?

There are probably some things worth eating that aren’t inherently photogenic, but a savvy purveyor will figure out how to make them so.  Case in point: the bounteous displays at the Granville Island Public Market.

As a Seattleite, I am of course loyal to the Pike Place Market, but when I’m in Vancouver I won’t miss a chance to visit Granville Island.  Fresh fruit, meat, pasta, cheese — as far as the eye can see and more than one stomach could accommodate in a lifetime.  Like great public markets everywhere, it’s an exercise in sensory overload.

Unfortunately, hotel rooms in Vancouver rarely come with decent kitchens, so there was no point taking these cool little crustaceans home other than in a photograph…
