With fashion and a farmers market, art galleries and antiques, the shopping scene is definitely one of P-Town’s greatest assets. Whether you’re into couture, collectables or just super-fresh corn and cod, Provincetown has something for you—just make sure you can fit it all in the car (or the boat) for your trip home.

Provincetown is known for its arts scene, with a legacy of great painters and creators going back more than a century. Just take a stroll down the streets of the town’s East End—packed with galleries showcasing both P-Town’s favorites and its up-and-comers—and you’ll understand why art collectors as well as beach bums flock to the little town at the tip of the Cape.

P-Town’s main thoroughfare is (as one might guess) Commercial Street. With quaint antique shops, kitschy gift shops, book stores, boutiques and more galleries, Commercial Street offers just about everything you’d expect from both an old New England town and a seaside hotspot.

And every Saturday starting in June and running through September, Macmillan Pier in the center of town plays host to the Provincetown Farmer’s and Fisherman’s Market Festival. Whether you’re looking to find the freshest locally grown produce and the catch of the day, or just to soak up some of the local color, the market is a local standby for a reason.
