Straw Market Tours

100 Reviews
Straw Market

One of the traditional crafts of the Bahamas, straw working has become infused into Bahamian culture and industry. Each island has developed its own distinctive plaiting or braiding style to create beautiful straw hats, baskets, etc.

The Straw Market in Nassau serves as the ultimate destination to pick up Bahamian souvenirs. Grab a hat to protect yourself from the sun, or maybe pick up a small wood carving as a trinket to take home to a family member. In addition to the authentic hand-crafted merchandise, the Straw Market also offers many other items. What makes the Straw Market a unique shopping experience is getting to bargain the prices down; just remember to never accept the first offer and have fun seeing how low you can get the price to go!

Practical Info

The Straw Market is located on downtown Bay Street along the northern coast of Nassau.

Island Girl Taxi and Tours offering a full island experience

For the Bahamas, tourism is big business. The facts are simple: tourists visit the island and they spend. They get off the coach or the plane, go to their hotel and then emerge and boost the economy of the place they are visiting. They often travel far and wide with their families in tow to experience in some cases their very first visit to The Bahamas. At Island Girls Taxi and Tours, with our combined hospitality experience we've listened and develop a tour that caters to you...via sight sound smell and taste. Why chance it to anyone else other than us. We love to show you our island, one unique tour at a time.
