“Wood carvings galore!”
Reviewed June 16, 2014

I am not sure if the vendors actually carved all the wood we got themselves, but some of them did. We even got a kitty cat carved out of Mahogany, if you haven't heard about this place its a must see, and 1.5 miles (long walk in flip flops) Junkanoo Bach is a free public beach with 3 shots 3 beers $10.

“crowded & overpriced”
Reviewed June 13, 2014

We were not impressed with the straw market at Nassau. We went with four generations so we had a large range of ages from teens to great grandma. The vendors in the market were too pushy, and the items were overpriced. One woman tried to sell Grandma a regular coffee mug for $40.00 When you say your not interested good luck getting away from these venders!

“Save your money”
Reviewed June 12, 2014

If you are not familiar with other countries' straw markets, you may love it. However, if you are, there won't be long before you realize what big tourist trap this is. Have extra money to spend and really don't care? Go for it. Otherwise, save your money.

“Straw Market”
Reviewed June 12, 2014

The "Straw Market" on Bay St was OK. Too big (for me) just to sell the same things you could see in any other place. To be honest, I prefered s smaller "Straw Market" on Cable beach which was even cheaper!

“Excellent”
Reviewed June 8, 2014

If you love yard sells and flea markets this place is for you. We loved it got souvenirs for 8 people under $50. Most venders have the same thing and if you know what you are looking for then look almost every one has the same thing and if you play the game right you can get it next to nothing. once you find the thing you cant live with out find the lowest price they will sell for then go to the next vender and let them know you found it for that price and get it for even lower depending on your negotiation skill this place can be even more fun.
