Downtown Nassau in general is a giant tourist trap and this is just more of the same. Vendors selling the same glasses, purses, frames and t-shirts. Nothing different or unique stall to stall. The one cool part is outside along the perimeter is the wood carving area. You can see them making and carving the wood to make sharks and fish etc.
