Nice to check out once, but with the tough economic times the vendors can be very pushy and made us avoid the straw market whenever we were in Lucaya.
As other have mentioned the items are pretty much the same from booth to booth and everyone will tell you that they hand make the baskets, not sure about the baskets being made locally as we were in the market very late and watched the vendors restocking their baskets from "made in China" boxes, and I doubt that any other "Local" items are made there such as the endless supplies of bracelets and "synthetic" sharks teeth neclaces.
Worth a walk through and a bite to eat but after that the best activity is to ditch the tourist trap and head out of town to the West (Paradise Cove) or East ends of GB, Garden of the Groves or Lucayan National Park with the amazing Gold Rock Beach.
