No enough business and is closed. Loved to go here last year but just too many other souvenir shops for the cruise ships at the docks and the locals could not compete. So sad!

The Straw Market is very average and needs some more economic support -- half full and mostly tourist tidbits. But the best part is a small bar in the corner that serves $2 margaritas and a decent selection of rum. Worth the short walk!

If you come here on a cruise ship and dock at the Coxen Hole dock, when you exit, once you have disembarked, just go to the right and you'll find a number of shops. This area is very active on cruise ship days.

The locals follow you around, vendors are pushy wanting you to purchase items. The Crusty Crab is a little bar inside the market. $2.00 drinks and $2.00 for all day wifi. There went many shops open when we walked through, but honestly, we were creeped...More
