Straw Market reopens in Nassau, Bahamas

NASSAU, Bahamas -- The Straw Market here opened for business again on Sept. 27 following a Sept. 4 fire that destroyed the market and the Bahamas Ministry of Tourism offices.

The temporary Straw Market quarters are located one block from the former site on what had been the Ministry of Tourism's parking lot.

The government plans to build a permanent structure for the Straw Market on the former site momentarily.
