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.
The Port Lucaya Marketplace shops and restaurants benefits from the nice sea breeze and overlooks the beautiful waterfront. It makes for a nice open air shopping experience and quite a change from a day spent at your local mall.

Port Lucaya Marketplace, Freeport Reviews
It was ok. Lots of stuff but each booth was packed with all the same ton of items. Some high end stores. You can get bargains if you know how to talk to people. Food so so. Good way to spend an afternoon.
Fun little place to shop and grab a bite. Something for everyone here. Also a fun place to hits bars when an event is going on. Must visit while your in the area.
This used to be an amazing place with great atmosphere, lots of fun and cool places to be but now is almost a dead zone, the main hotels are shut so there are no tourists and a couple of scrappy places fight for those who are left. The largest subset of clients are the shipyard workers who sit on the ground taking advantage of the free WiFi, without spending any money in the shops, bars or restaurants. They look like the asylum seekers you see in civilised countries and the USA
Met a lovely local vendor in this marketplace. Found the cheapest cocktails here too. Shopped with the nicest lady, a local, who gave a good deal on souvenirs.
People are very nice, most venders carry the same objects. Handmade souvenirs make sure to take some cash
