Just your typical gathering place in the marketplace. It was clean and no problems observed while we were there.

same old, same old tourist trap. Spotted a cute beach bag that was plastic waterproof. They wanted $25 and were not willing to negotiate. Restrooms were very clean. Nice place to stroll without the high pressure sales like in Nassau.

This was a very popular place. We first saw the Square the first night we were in Freeport. We went to the Marketplace for dinner and then walked around. It caught our attention because there was a tremendous band playing on the stage and they sounded great. Before we knew it - everyone was up dancing, singing, kids were jumping... More
