The straw market was a little congested and the prices were higher than I expected. We got better deals on Bay Ave in the souvenir stores.

Tons of vendors many selling the exact same thing. Indoor market crowded with merchandise making it hard to browse the aisles. Vendors aggressively trying to sell engaging in conversation only relating to trying to make a sale. Most of the merchandise is labeled Bahamas.

Just a tourist junk market with all the same stuff as in Mexico or any other tourist trap. Not worth it. Most of the stuff I saw had made in China on it 🧐

Inundated with souvenirs and barkers selling their goods and cheap souvenirs you will actually find straw baskets and purses. You can negotiate your price- but the experience can be a bit overwhelming and it all starts looking the same. If you’ve never been you should...More

Glad to spend some money in the Bahamas, to support them after the hurricane. Straw market is a must do and I got to teach the kids how to haggle about prices. Teen got lots of gifts for friends for a few bucks apiece. Sellers...More

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.
