Key West’s Bahama Village

Bahama Village

Bahama Village Market was a once flourishing area of town for commerce thriving in the booming tourist trade specializing in Bahamian life, culture, clothes, souvenirs and its famous mouth-watering belly filling food.

I said ONCE… time has reduced its colorful crowded past from 15-20 shops down to one… one as seen here. Behind this last hold out is a fence blocking off the uninhabited shops and vacant parking areas once filled with patrons, souvenir hunter, tourist seekers and hungry visitors.

Now days you can only find a handful of goers perusing their shelves on an hourly basis…. that is… unless you come during Fantasy Fest which transforms this area of town into a hub for the 2 day celebration called ‘Goombay’. It’s still a neat part of town to walk around and worth a stroll by when in the area.

You can find the Bahama Village Market at the corner of Petronia Street a few blocks southwest of Duval Street in Key West.
