Opened in 1967, Freeport's International Bazaar has been recognized as a symbol of the Bahamas. Filled with shops, restaurants, and other locally-owned stalls, the Bazaar used to be the light of the town. It was tragically affected by the hurricane season of 2004, and was, for quite some time, considered an abandoned artifact of Bahaman life.
Luckily, life has begun to appear at the Bazaar in full force, as local merchants, restaurateurs, artists, and other business owners rallied together to restore it to its original glory.
Sample the local cuisine, create your own perfume, browse the handmade crafts, and get a taste of a true symbol of Freeport at the International Bazaar.
Located just 6km (4mi) out of central Freeport, the International Bazaar has something for everyone. With hundreds of shops to choose from, the best piece of advice for wandering the stalls is to wear good walking shoes.
The bazaar is stroller and wheelchair accessible, and has plenty of places to relax, eat, and enjoy the sunshine.
