Where to Buy Groceries in Eastham, Massachusetts
Posted by Kinlin Grover | Thursday, May 6, 2021

One of the main perks of staying in a Cape Cod vacation rental is that it'll be equipped with a kitchen. As a result, you won't have to eat out for every meal, helping you save time and money throughout your holiday.

If you're lucky enough to snag a vacation rental in Eastham, MA, you'll immediately fall in love with the location thanks to the community's parks, beaches, hiking trails, ponds, and accessibility. Eastham doesn't have the same name recognition as larger centers like Hyannis and Falmouth, but it's a fantastic place to spend your vacation.

However, you could experience issues when looking for groceries to stock your cupboards because the town doesn't have stores on every corner like a major city.

There's hope, though, because you will find some stores if you know where to search.

Here's a look at some markets and grocery stores in Eastham and its surrounding towns that will help keep your kitchen full of food all vacation long.

Eastham Superette

Depending on the location of your vacation rental, the most convenient place to grab groceries might be Eastham Superette, a grocery store that enjoys a central location on Route 6 beside Windmill Green.

This locally-owned store has been in operation since 1952 and has never closed for a single day since that time. That's right, they haven't closed for an entire day in nearly 70 years.

Once inside, you'll find a wide selection of groceries, including plenty of organic items, in addition to a deli, ready-made breakfast and lunch sandwiches, beach items, and a full liquor store.

If your vacation rental is near downtown Eastham, Eastham Superette should be on your list of grocery stores to visit.

Village Green General Store

When renting in North Eastham, you might check out the Village Green General Store, which sits on Brackett Road, just off Route 6.

First things first, the Village Green General Store is more of a convenience store than a full supermarket. If you're looking for specialty items, this might not be the place to do it.

Still, you'll find some essential grocery items and a limited selection of fresh produce once inside. If you just need a few things to get you through the day or plan to eat at restaurants for most of your vacation, the Village Green General Store might be enough for you.

Wellfleet Market Place

Another option for those staying in North Eastham is Wellfleet Market Place, a general store in downtown Wellfleet with a little bit of everything.

This retailer has plenty of grocery items, so it's worth checking out if there are things you can't find at the Village Green General Store, and it's only about a ten-minute drive from North Eastham, too.

As a bonus, Hatch's Fish and Produce Market is across the street from Wellfleet Market Place, so you can grab some of the Cape's freshest seafood, fruit, and vegetables to enjoy from your vacation rental.

Orleans Grocery Stores

If your vacation rental is in the southern part of Eastham, it might make sense to pop down to Orleans to grab some groceries.

The northern end of downtown Orleans features a Stop & Shop location, where you're sure to find any food items you want to have around the house. Yes, it's a chain, but it's convenient, and you know they'll have everything you need for the week.

For those who'd rather support local, Main Street in Orleans is home to Orleans Whole Food Store and Friends' Marketplace, both of which have a great selection of meat, produce, and other grocery items. There's also Nauset Farms in East Orleans, a local gem that's worth the extra drive.

Downtown Eastham and downtown Orleans are only about three miles apart, so you won't have to travel far to reach most of these shops.

Vacationing in Eastham, MA

As you look through the available vacation rentals on Cape Cod, you'll surely have a vision of how you want your time here to go. 

If you're the type of person who wants to cook meals in the unit's kitchen before spending the day at the beach and returning for dinner, finding a local market or grocery store to frequent should be a priority.

Fortunately for those staying in Eastham, there are enough nearby markets that you'll have access to all the food you wish to enjoy on vacation without any hassle whatsoever.
