Love the music

We absolutely love the music on Fridays and Saturdays. Great time meeting new friends and dancing in the evening. Wish we could've here for the Christmas tree lighting

Lots of different vendors, so you can bargain with them! Be prepared to have them come up to you and drag you into the space for a sale.

When I drive into Freeport from West End, I typically lunch or dine at one of the many Port Lucaya restaurants and have never had a bad meal. The straw market is also fun.

They will barter a bit, but like to follow you and try to get you in there booth like any other market. All were very nice I felt safe would of went here by myself and not thought anything about it. Prices were a little high and most of them had the same stuff.

Great local shops to shop at and huts to try local foods. Non pressure to buy or stop and see and just very relaxing. A must see

Nothing much here but lots of drinking holes and stalls with cheap junk at inflated prices. There are some weirdos walking around trying to latch onto any women, so be careful. Wouldn't recommend this for any gal travelling alone, we were two and it was annoying,hot, boring.

The Corner Bar is great. The bartenders were friendly and the specials were cheap. Will definitely go to this bar again. Highly recommended.

Walking the Marketplace is amusing. All the vendors try to get you in their booths. They will call out to you and try to convince you to purchase from them. There are several restaurants to choose from. A must is Tuesday at Agave! Lots of jewelry. Definately bargain with them. My friend and I had a fun afternoon visiting all... More
