History of Kids Market Prominently situated on Granville Island, this unique two-storey, multi-tenanted complex offers merchandise, entertainment and services for the young and the young-at-heart in the Vancouver area. Local shoppers and tourists from around the world recognize Kids Market at the entrance to the Island. Granville Island was created in 1917 as an industrial site, with more than two miles of railroad tracks down the center of the island and along its perimeter. The plants established on the island started churning out steel rivets, band saws, boilers, nails, bolts, cement and paint. Kids Market resides in the building that was originally a paint factory – The Pacific White Paint Company.
Kids Market was created in 1984. It has 15,728 square feet of retail area on two levels. Included in the project are two annex buildings and a caboose. Kids Market has something to draw shoppers of all ages. Its expansive wood-beam ceilings, large windows and airy market design, combine with interactive areas to create an inspiring atmosphere for shopping and fun. Kids Market houses over 25 shops that offer a range of varied products, such as toys, dress-up, clothing and shoes, games, books and creative learning tools, as well as indoor and outdoor play areas. Unique to Kids Market is “The Adventure Zone”, a four-level play area and “Circuit Circus”, an old-fashioned arcade.
