To pick up Island history or a souvenir or enjoy a bite to eat, the Marketplace is the place to come. Variety of shops, eateries, and activities can be found in one stop. The Bahamian Marine Museum is located here. Spend an hour to take in the history of the island and then enjoy the variety of foods offered here. Browsing the shops is an entertaining experience as well. All in all there is something here for all ages to enjoy while vacationing.

Due to the holiday most of the shops were closed for 3 days. Something to think about traveling over the holidays

This area is one of the highlights of the island. Even though they are still recovering from Dorian, they have made much progress in their revitalization of the area. Plenty of shops with good quality products, and the restaurants are plentiful with a diversity of options. Great as a day trip while your cruise is at port.

With the Casino still closed the Market place was quiet with a number of closed shops. Those that were open and the stall vendors were fine. For a local Greek restaurant Zorba is excellent. Zsa Zsa bar a fun place. All in all if you are in Freeport would recommend stopping at Lucaya.

If you’re looking for amazing drinks and a fun island atmosphere or want to find souvenirs and gifts to bring back stop here. The local merchants are very friendly and very appreciative of your business. You’ll find mostly small stands but a few larger stores. We were mostly interested in shopping in the smaller stands and talking with the locals. We were asked to take a tour of a nearby resort and just in doing so we would get free lunch and gifts. We had nothing on our agenda and the woman asking us was sweet so we took the tour. There was no pressure on us and the resort they showed us was amazing but we were just respectful and said it was something we would need to think about. But yep they gave us a free lunch off a limited menu but it was very good and they gave us a choice of free gift valued up to $40. Then they took us back to Port Lucaya market and we walked down to the best bar on the island Rum Runners. The vibe there was great and bartender Markus treated us well. We ended up singing country songs loudly at the end of the bar with 3 of the regulars and had a great time. Don’t forget to sign a dollar bill and put it up on the wall to leave a token of your visit there for good luck.

Aside from the vendors desperate to make a buck, alot of places were closed. We did meet some locals who were very nice and polite. Was happy to visit their establishment since tourism is their way of life.

Purchased a beautiful bracelet at the Freeport Jewelers ;and dined at Zorba's for breakfast.

We wanted to enjoy our walk-around through the port but we were immediately irritated by all the vendors who are non-stop about walking up to you and trying to get your to purchase from them; we left almost right away. Too bad because we really wanted to just enjoy the stroll around. Why don't these people realize the more they push the more you're not interested?!

About standard Port Shopping. Clean and reasonably well stocked. Vendors were friendly and eager for customers.

The marketplace used to be such a lively place, and it's sad because there are now a lot of shops closed and not a lot of people around. We were fortunate that there was a Junkanoo there on our last day which made it a little more lively with more shops open, the braid ladies were out and there was some dancing in the square. So we did have a good time dancing and shopping around. Hopefully tourism picks up a bit to bring some life back.
