Every Wednesday night through August the Falmouth Village Association plays a movie on a projector at dusk in Falmouth’s beautiful Peg Noonan Park.  Enjoy new movies like The Box Trolls as well as favorite classics like The Princess Bride. It’s the perfect excuse to cozy up under the stars and breathe some fresh air. Bring chairs and a blanket, grab some take-out from any of the unbelievable Main Street restaurants and enjoy your night out! Check Falmouth Village Association’s website for an up to day schedule of which movie is playing each week.
Farmer’s Markets are one of the most delicious parts of Cape Cod, and Falmouth is no exception. All week long, there are farmer’s markets across the area with the freshest local foods and most unique handmade wares. Because of the uncharacteristically long winter, many local farmers are finding their crops are a bit delayed which means we will be enjoying a beautiful summer bounty into the fall.

The Falmouth Farmer’s Market takes place each Thursday through October 8th from 12-6pm at Marine Park. The market features products exclusively from FFMCape Cod and Southeastern Mass. Enjoy locally grown and artisanally crafted vegetables, fruits, cheeses, lobsters, breads, pies, pastas, smoked fish, herbs, vegetable starts and ornamentals.

The Falmouth/Mashpee Green Harvest Organic Farmer’s Market happens on Tuesdays through October 13th from 12-4pm at the Cape Cod Fair Grounds. You’ll find local organic veggies, herbs, fruits, greens, pickles, organic/vegan gluten-free baked goods, olive oils, fruit tarts, wild picked berry jams and jellies, edible and medicinal mushrooms, local honey, artisanal cheeses, farm-fresh eggs, seafood, herbs, vegetables and organic/fair trade coffees. In addition to those irresistible edibles, there are flowering plants, locally made home goods and treats for kids and pets.

The Woods Hole Craft and Farmer’s Market takes place in the heart of Woods Hole Village every Saturday from 8am-3pm through October. This farmer’s market is home to creative arts and fresh local produce. Woods Hole village is located at the end of the Shining Sea Bike Path, a wonderful treat after a day of cycling! Tour the many artist’s tables and find the perfect piece of jewelry to commemorate your time on the Cape.

Make your stay in Falmouth last by taking home something fresh!

 

 

 

 

3 Falmouth Village venues have teamed up to create one great series of evening events on Mondays this summer. Monday, July 7th through August 18th.

  1. The first location is “Falmouth Museums on the Green“. They will be open late from 5:00 to 7:00 pm – a perfect time to step out for a little historic town culture. The Falmouth Historic Society is the overseer of the Museums. The society was established in 1900 and its mission is to preserve and present the town’s history and share that history with the public. The museum buildings  are located across from the Falmouth Village Green at 55-65 Palmer Avenue.The buildings on the Museums’ campus include two historic homes, the Conant House that was built in 1730 and the (Dr. Joseph) Wicks House that was built in 1790. The Wicks House is a hansom example of Federalist Period architecture. There are also lovely colonial style flower gardens and a kitchen herb garden.  The third building on the campus is the Visitor Center or the rustic Hallett Barn and the adjacent Cultural Center. The barn has a charming gift shop and it is where tours begin. Tour guides will be present to direct visitors around the to the buildings. The two major exhibits this summer are “Victorian Life in Falmouth” and “Expressions in Stitches – Then and Now”. Admission is free.
  2. The second Summer Monday evening event will be “Hyannis Sound” at the First Congregational Church at 68 Palmer Avenue. The shows begin at 7:00 pm.”Hyannis Sound” consists of ten young men with the voices of angels who sing popular music, a cappella. As one might imagine the music is filled with the youthful energy and the harmony is wonderful. Their choice of music spans the decades. “Hyannis Sound” is a semi-professional singing group the men come from around the United States and convene each summer on Cape Cod. Their signature preppy look, of pastel shirts and ties with khakis, is created with the help of “Vineyard Vines” a local clothing store. Tickets are sold at the door and are $5.00 for children and $12.00 for adults.
  3. The third, and arguably the tastiest Summer event, is at Saint Barnabas Church’s “Lobster on the Lawn”. The brown bag dinner begins at 5:00 pm. The meal consists of a lobster roll, chips and your choice of beverage.   For desert, a slice of pie. The price is $15.00 and there is also an appropriately priced child’s meal.  The proceeds go to their food pantry to feed the homeless.

We know that summer has arrived when we hear the lobsterman’s bugle blowing on Monday evenings on the spacious Saint Barnabas lawn.

The bugle is played by a very energetic gentleman who is dressed in Bermuda shorts, a top hat and a lobster suit. He beckons one and all to join him for a fine feast of lobster rolls and chips on a warm summer’s evening.
