Nestled among deep fryers and artificially sweetened beverages lies the Fraser Valley Juice and Salad counter, whose overhead menu promises a profusion of naturally flavoured, healthily prepared and completely satisfying meals, snacks and drinks. And don't let the name fool you; there's something here for everyone, even the most hearty health-food pessimists.
Hot or Cold
A fruit smoothie can be the perfect refreshment for a hot and crowded day on the Island, a steaming plate of stir-fried vegetables noodles can take you out of the dull cold day you are having. Pita pockets, grain salads, Asian-inspired dishes and a host of vegetarian options round out the menu at this fresh little food stand. And it's no wonder there's always a line-up: owner Judie Glick is one of the co-authors of the original Granville Island Market Cookbook, published in 1985.
Stay or Go
The perfect lunch hour stop, Fraser Valley Juice and Salad knows how to fill you up and send you back to work or a day filled with play. The food stand patented their now-famous salad roll as a takeout item, which used to only be found in restaurants, making it a popular to go items in the city. Freshly squeezed juice, a satisfying salad and a cup of soup or a sandwich gives all new meaning to brain food, whether you choose to take it away or find a spot within the Market.
