The Roads to Summer
Cape Cod flea market still thriving after 40 years
Just off of winding Route 6, past the motels, clam shacks, and myriad beach shops that line the Cape Cod byway, sits the decades-old drive-in theater. The massive asphalt parking lot often fills up by 10 a.m. during the summer. But the trailers, trucks, and vans are not packed with movie buffs out for an early matinee. Instead, they are laden with clothing, antiques, and knickknacks. Four mornings each week, are many as 200 vendors line up to sell homemade jewelry, baseball cards, music, and other wares.
