FREEPORT, GRAND BAHAMA – Once a highlight for tourists and locals, the Port Lucaya Marketplace in Grand Bahama now leaves much to be desired. Vendors tell Our News they are not happy and need solutions.

Port Lucaya vendors were hit hard by the slow pace of revival in the once-bustling marketplace.

Workers say they have seen successive governments come and go, with few solutions, leaving what one vendor described, a cemetery.

This comes as the Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Grand Bahama toured the desolate marketplace this morning.

Lorenzo McKenzie has been a port Lucaya vendor for more than 50 years. He says was encouraged by the visit.

DPM and Minister of Tourism Chester Cooper and Minister of Grand Bahama Ginger Moxey say the vendors’ needs will be addressed swiftly.
