Feel bad this is how these people have to struggle to make a poor living. I hope someone is buying this stuff.

It was too hot inside the market, very unorganized and found most of the stuff more expensive than in gift shops. Plus it's only cash.

It is a wonderful place to buy souvenirs, but it's expensive. Do Not Pay What They Are Asking!!! Haggle and chew them down as much as you can, they'll work with you to a point. If they are stubborn just go to the next shop...More

We did it get hassled or harassed by the merchants. Everyone was very friendly and making a decent living. We bought most of our souvenirs from a pair of sister and mom. Great shopping experience.

The straw market wasn’t very nice. There are blue tarps everywhere dividing the booths. It is not clean and tidy as you’ll see in the videos online. Very crowded and most people sell the same thing. The vendors were extremely pushy!

We visited the Straw Market as Nassau was a port call for the cruise ship we were on. It is right across the street from the cruise terminal. We were almost overwhelmed by the number of vendors, there had to be 100 or so. We...More

We stopped at the straw Market after jumping off our Carnival Cruise Ship. These folks don't get stirred round till around 10 a.m. so don't get in any hurry getting there. But there are lots of Bargains to be had and they are very negotiable,...More

The Straw Market is huge and seems to go on and in for forever. It was fun to experience, but after about 45 minutes, I got work out with being approached by every vendor we walked by. We bought a few things to take home,...More

This is just like any other tourist souvenir shops. Much like a flea market. Vendors trying to get your business and giving you “better” prices. We did buy some things. Nothing that was top quality but cute.

Not sure about the church, but I do recal there being one up the hill. If it's that one, it's less then a 10 min walk from the market.

As soon as you port there is a market. And you can walk off/on board all day if you like. Or grab a cab to the beach for $2 a person Atlantis is also $2-3 cab per person.
