 Cape Abilities Farm to Table Market & Gallery was launched in 2011 when the owner of the historic building, which previously housed an art gallery, offered Cape Abilities use of the space rent-free. The Markey and Gallery is currently staffed by Cape Abilities participants, who are gaining valuable  retail experience and customer service  skills.  We are very grateful to the community for their continuing support and warm welcome.

Cape Abilities Farm to Table Market & Gallery is a terrific destination for locals and travelers alike.  The shop features our award-winning tomatoes and fresh salad greens and produce from the Cape Abilities Farm in Dennis, fresh and frozen pies from the Centerville Pie Company, cold drinks and snacks, a beautiful selection of Gustare oils and vinegars, and a wonderful assortment of locally-made products – including fresh bread from Pain D’Avignon, fruit pies from Centerville Pie Company, and a variety of local jams, jellies and honey.  And when you’re there, don’t forget to pick up some fresh cut flowers and hanging plants for the porch or deck too!
