Port Lucaya Marketplace is a very vibrant little market and a great destination for all your souvenir needs.
The marketplace has abundant food choices with every nook and corner filled with small kiosks and restaurants as well. Sellers are rather enthusiastic about attracting customers into their shops and you will have to accommodate a fair amount of haggling into the entire experience. The shops contain a healthy range of items such as clothes, gemstones, jewellery, crystals, crafts, handmade souvenirs etc.
The marketplace has a large straw market, one of the biggest in the Bahamas. Hou will find international brands being sold right next to authentic hand-crafted items.
Since shopping for Gucci or precious gemstones does not go very well with having the little ones cry out for your attention, the marketplace has some fun filled activities for the kids. This includes dance and music activities, art and crafts, street performances, and more.
If you want to or need to stray clear of the stores, check out Count Basie Square, the hub of entertainment at Port Lucaya Marketplace,Freeport, Bahamas. This outdoor stage hosts dance events, karaoke, local and international artists throughout the year.
The shopping complex is located close to the beach – so you could combine the retail therapy with some water sports.

Port Lucaya Marketplace, Freeport Reviews - Write a Review
Port Lucaya Market Place is very fun and welcoming environment for not only the tourist to walk around but the locals as well. There are many different shops, bars, and restaurants that sell a wide variety of items, from things that you might be familiar to to unique souvenirs. At night, Port Lucaya has Bahamian singers on stage performing along, with the man who limbos with fire. It is extremely lively at night, so don’t be afraid to start dancing on the dance floor.
Lots of little local shops. All the people are very friendly and attentive. The lady at the Oasis store was very helpful in helping us pick out some souveniers for our visit. Beautiful shops!
Quite a range here from stalls with locals hawking their wares (t-shirts) and services (braids/beads). Then there are high end clothing/jewelry/perfume shops catering to the yacht crowd in the marina. Same with food...dives to upscale.
Other than a lot of time share people trying to get you to visit there hotels this place was great... You meet a lot of great people here and the smells are amazing.
Good selection of shops and restaurants and easy go get to. Feel like getting a Rolex? They've got a Rolex shop too! Amazing selection of both high end and just your normal nic knacky type vacation type souvenirs as well. Head to the port side and take a fishing trip or glass bottom boat tour. Lots to do in a small area.
