    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.

    After seeing some pictures online my husband I decided to venture out and stop by the straw market for the day. If you are looking to purchase some small trinkets, t-shirts, beach bags etc. you have gone to the right place. But if you just want to look around be prepared some of the vendors are very aggressive to the point that it’s uncomfortable. I know that this is how they make a living but I felt bad saying no thank you repeatedly.
    The streets are patrolled by many police so it felt very safe. Plus the cruise ships come in so many people around. No issues getting a cab so that was nice.

    Shop owner (Lisa) was wonderful- kind, sweet and Oh, SO TALENTED! Her shop featured an assemblage of lovely items, incredibly diverse in materials but all visually appealing. Her unique items all seem to capture the essence of lighthearted love she herself exudes. Lisa was a delight to speak with and I am so happy to have a trinket of her creation to remind me of my fantastic Bahama vacation! Price points available for ALL budgets 😊

    I already mentioned Paradise Jewels in my Lucyan Marketplace review. It was just luck that I saw it across the street from the Marketplace and decided to stop in. First of all, it was a quiet and relaxing retreat from the busy chaos of the Marketplace. You're offered a drink when you walk in and the salespeople are helpful, but not pushy. Most of the jewelry is on sale, like in the Marketplace. I think that this is a "permanent sale". It's a small store with gold, sterling silver, and precious and semi-precious stones. I thought that it was much better quality than all of the jewelry stores at the Luycan Market (except Colombian Emeralds) and much better prices.
    I ended up buying a coin replica pendent and chain. Thanks to Mazie.
    Tips: only open till 5 or 5:30

    We went to visit Port Lucaya Marketplace almost daily in our recent trip to Freeport (my second trip to Freeport). I am always interested in supporting local artists and bringing back souvenirs that have a handcrafted feel. Amongst the sea of tshirts, shot glasses, tie dyed dresses that are not made on the island, Coconut Treasures is a pleasant discovery to the artisan crafts appreciator. If you're interested in local handmade crafts similar to One of a Kind Craft show that they have in Toronto, then this jewelry & accessories cart is the place to go in the market!

    Coconut Treasures is a stand alone cart in the middle of Arts and Crafts market. On display are items where 80% are handmade by the local artist, Gina Marche. She sells items all made from coconut shells of unique earrings, pendant necklaces, handcrafted magnets, pony tail holders, Christmas ornaments, masks that are thickly lacquered for durability and have a bahamian inspired feel. Definitely these craft pieces are unique originals and I can tell they are high quality; a refreshing change to the many retail stalls awash with cheap and repetitious items that are not made on the island.

    I don't have a photo of the display, but here is an example of what I saw of her unique and original work: https://www.bahamas.com/node/52662.

    We bought two magnets made of coconut shell (they are hand painted with scenes on the front) and one coconut bangle which is thick and sturdy, lacquered and gold striping. Definitely my coconut bangle will be the envy of the office ladies at work!

    My suggestion is to go there and chat with the owner when she is there at her shop. She spends half of her time hand making the items (that's commitment to the art, if you ask me!) so she can't always be at the shop to sell the items at the same time.
