Orleans, MA - Best Food Shopping

I can see quite a few restaurant recommendations for the Orleans area and the Cape in general, but since we'll be staying in a house, I'd love to hear recommendations for quality and/or interesting food shopping. Extra points for a good place to buy live lobsters. We're a mile or two north of E. Orleans proper, near the town cove.

And if you have any new restaurant suggestions, feel free to throw them in, too.

Thanks in advance hounds!

  1. Friends Market near Snows Library is a great little store.

    1. Go into Wellfleet to Hatch's for great smoked fish. We have only gotten the smoked fish there but I imagine the fresh is great as well. They have a little farm stand next to it but it looks expensive to me. It is on Main Street next to town hall.

        Hatch's Fish is indeed terrific for fresh and smoked fish as well as lobsters. So is Mac's Seafood in Wellfleet Harbor. The Chocolate Sparrow is a treat for fine chocoalate as well as penny candy for a lark. I'd love to hear people's thoughts on restaurants in Orleans and Wellfleet.
