Store History

  • Headquarters: Welfleet, MA

The Cape has always been one of my favorite places to get away from it all. Besides the beautiful beaches outlining the many historic townships, the vintage shopping is a huge draw for me year after year - with the Wellfleet Flea Market always at the top of my to-do list.

Located inside the parking lot of The Wellfleet Cinemas, Cape Cod's only drive-in Movie Theater, over 200 vendors convene every Saturday and Sunday to display their collection of antiques and vintage collectibles. From clothing and jewelry to furniture and knickknacks, the Wellfleet Flea is a great place for finding treasures of all sorts, especially nautical goods specific to the New England area. Items are priced to sell and vendors generally seem open to a little negotiation. Tip: walk down to the front the cinema parking lot to catch all the cool stuff.

The Wellfleet Cinemas is located at 51 Route 6 at the town line of Eastham and Wellfleet in Cape Cod, Massachusetts. Hours vary throughout the year as follows:

May 7th through June 26th:
Saturdays and Sundays 8am to approx 3pm
