Shoppers will find an assortment of handmade items on Grand Bahama Island, from braided jewelery, painted conch shells, and straw hats and baskets that serve as the "signature" souvenir to bring home. Most of the shopping action can be found in the Port Lucaya Marketplace, a collection of stores, restaurants, and bars that also boasts the Straw Market in the back where prices are negotiable. Within the marketplace, there are a few stand-out shops like Leo's Art Gallery, which showcases the works of the talented artist, Leo Brown.
At the cruise port, the Freeport Harbour has a collection of shops in the straw market, as well as restaurants and entertainment. Although not as large as the Port Lucaya Marketplace, shoppers can pick up some unique items before getting back on the cruise ship.
In addition, several art galleries and specialty shops can be found throughout the island, like the Perfume Factory, located next to the International Bazaar, and offers tours of the shop as well as unique fragrances and lotions.
