Still rebuilding and vendors are a bit aggressive. City has not fully recovered and lacks the hustle and bustle of a tourist town.

Do not bother going inside because it is a trap! Most of the items don't have a price listed and when you ask for the price they are three times the price you should pay. I understand the Covid closure was hard on everybody but Nassau Bahamas has really gone downhill.

Maybe it's just me, but I absolutely hated the straw market. So many people told us to visit on our cruise and it was on our list. We spent maybe 15 minutes here. All of the vendors sell the exact same things- cheap see-through T-shirts, magnets, shot glasses, and straw bags that do not look authentic. The sellers are extremely pushy- if I looked at something, they tried putting it in a bag and telling me my "tab." They are very high priced as well, so expect to bargain. If you are uncomfortable bartering or dealing with aggressiveness, do not stop here! There are plenty of other tourist shops that sell the exact same things

I do not recommend going here if you are a tourist. They will rip you off and take every last penny you have. If you do decide to come here negotiate everything and don't get fooled by the sellers. I wil never go back here again. Scary and Shady!

I can't believe this is a top 15 thing to do in Nassau. It is nothing but a densely packed building of pushy sellers with booths of merchandise that comes primarily from China. I remember the original straw market from years ago it it was truly people selling local souvenirs that were primarily hand crafted. This new commercial undertaking is the opposite.

Sellers are pushy and each stall sells the same thing. Lots of Bob Marley stuff even though he was from Jamaica and not the Bahamas. Nothing inside felt authentic.

But on the outside by the side of the Straw Market there are lots of lovely hand crafted wooden ornaments, I would have purchased one if the sellers where not so pushy soon as you looked at something

my girlfriends and I really enjoyed visiting the Straw Market. We were looking through all the stores on the strip and when we got to straw market we stayed in there for hours. The vendors weren’t aggressive which made for great shopping. it’s nice and breezy and not hot. the outside vendors were great. we really truly enjoyed it and brought home a lot a little goodies.

Love the straw market , I think everyone should stop in and give it a try I enjoy seeing and meeting all the venders , it’s what we would call an updated flea market in the states , a lot of people have similar things but a lot have unique and different things also , negotiations are definitely recommended and totally ok , I was advised by all the locals to do so , they are hustlers and they will try to sell you everything that’s what they are there for don’t let that shy you away , I rather support local families 100 percent of the time then go to any other commercial shopping

Lots of items all in one place. Vendors are friendly and mostly passive in their solicitation, saying hello, but letting you alone to look. Mostly indoors.
