  • Closed because of covid Disappointed to find this popular straw market closed, we did find nearby shops where similar products were sold. Other stores on Bay Street were good ones. All retail workers....  more »
  • We went to grab some cheap souvenirs and the whole market was closed. Don’t waste your time during COVID. I assume it will not reopen until cruise ships are putting in to port.  more »
  • Fun and exciting! A bit different than the USA. A great experience. Totally focused on tourists. If you want the tourist experience this is a must. But for someone looking for a more local experience this is not what I would recommend. It is not easy to get a local point of view although the tourist vibe is everywhere and that is easy to achieve.
  • Downtown Nassau in general is a giant tourist trap and this is just more of the same. Vendors selling the same glasses, purses, frames and t-shirts. Nothing different or unique stall to stall. The one cool part is outside along the perimeter is the wood carving area. You can see them making and carving the wood to make sharks and fish etc.
