Village LIFE: Explore the village of Falmouth

Bean and Cod

Storefronts and restaurants dot the sidewalk on the other side of the street, and the newly opened Gallery on Main always has something new to check out. Opened in 2018, beloved Falmouth artist Karen Rinaldo has collaborated with local musician Don Cross to bring a shared vision of collaboration, inspiration and celebration of artistic spirit to the community of Falmouth. Various local artists are represented, but the real magic happens during the frequent receptions and casual gatherings that pair the artistic synergy of local musicians and representational artists. Cross is often found contributing his own special brand of music with other musicians, and you can always count on Rinaldo to make everyone feel welcome.

The next block, offers up pizza nd family fare at Simply DiVine Pizza Co. and the cheery and whimsical windows at Harvest of Barnstable announces each season with fanfare. Their home accessories and hostess gifts will generate smiles and thanks.

Rural Roots

Just past the library on the next corner is a small green space named after Falmouth’s own Katherine Lee Bates, author of “America the Beautiful.” Across the street, and tucked behind some European lace café curtains, is La Cucina Sul Mare. Literally translating to “The Kitchen by the Sea,” owner/chef Mark Cilfone and his wife Cynthia have been turning out Italian specialties for almost 20 years. Their welcoming atmosphere is truly transporting, and whether it is a hot August night on the latticed terrace out back, or a snowy winter night tucked into a table for two in the front window, your meal, your service and your memories will be something to cherish.

A bit farther down the street, Maxwell & Co. at 200 Main Street says that it is all about their customers. Focused on the experience of shopping, owners Dan and Lori Maxwell and thier staff go to great effort to curate the unusual, source the unimaginable, and procure the most desirable in women’s and men’s finer clothing and accessories from around the world. Store sales director/business partner Doug Keil says,”We try to make shopping with us a destination.”
