The Bermuda Craft Market is a great place to come and buy original Bermuda crafts, gifts, and souvenirs. It was established in 1987 and is situated in a historic building at the Royal Naval Dockyard.
A diverse range of talented crafters and artisans showcase their works here. Most are Bermudian or have strong ties to the island. They include Lynn Morrell (Bermuda inspired silver jewellery), Christine Wellman (ceramics), Llewellyn Emery (cedar products), Ronnie Chameau (banana leaf and palm dolls), Gail Graham (needlework and embroidery), Heidi Augustinovic (shell ornaments), and Don and Frances Mason (lapidary). On many days they can be found at their tables demonstrating their skills.
The market is also a good place to buy postcards, maps, and books about Bermuda’s history, architecture, wildlife, and more.
A wide selection of Bermudian foods and condiments is available here. Gombey Pepper Jams from the Bermuda Jam Factory, Outerbridge’s Original Sherry Peppers Sauce, Barritt’s Ginger Beer, and Horton’s Original Bermuda Black Rum Cake are just a few of the products for sale.
The Bermuda Craft Market is situated on Freeport Road at Royal Naval Dockyard. It’s just a short walk from the cruise ship docks at Kings Wharf and Heritage Wharf. The Bermuda Arts Centre and the Frog and Onion Pub are next to the market.
The Bermuda Craft Market is open 7 days a week. Opening times in the winter months (November to March) are 10 am to 5 pm. In the summer months opening hours are 9 am to 6 pm (8 pm when cruise ships are in port).
Reviews and Additional Information
Nice place to come and do shopping for Bermuda souvenirs. Reminded me of the Straw Market in Nassau, but you won’t find any counterfeit goods here.
