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!
