We are so happy to be situated in cozy North Truro.
With our stunning private beach, a gorgeous local vineyard, fantastic restaurants and so much more, we are spoiled in our small town! With that said, Sandbars wouldn’t be Sandbars if we weren’t right next to the amazing Provincetown.
Provincetown is a town unlike any other. Full to the brim with personality and culture, Provincetown (lovingly referred to as ‘Ptown’ by locals and lovers of the seaside oasis) is known for housing artists, being a vocal safe space and spotlight for LGBTQ+ folks, and delicious seafood. One of the many facets that make this town what it is, is Commercial Street! A “main street” that runs along the shoreline of Ptown, Commercial Street is packed with local stores, each one drawing you in. In this blog, we will be naming just a few of our favorites, but this is by no means a be-all-end-all list! Please make sure to pop your head into as many shops as possible, supporting local artisans and enjoying the incredible community here.
Of course, when you visit Massachusetts, you can’t escape history around every corner! Angel Foods is no different, located in a storefront that dates back to the 19th century, and once housed a fishing and whaling company, a market, a grocery store, and is now home to Angel Foods. Today you can find gourmet groceries, prepared foods, cheeses, fresh vegetables, and more. With the “look and feel of an old-fashioned, small-town market,” we’re sure you’ll enjoy your visit!
As you may already know, Sandbars Inn is proud to be pet-friendly! Provincetown is just as happy to keep your pup in mind, and charming shops like this prove it! Paws & Whiskers is a pet store, and given its location on Commercial Street, rest assured you will discover unique items found only here that your pet will adore! As they say on their website – “ask your dog to bring you in!”.

One word: chocolate. With more delectable selections than we can even count, you won’t ever want to leave this shop. If you think we’re exaggerating, see for yourself: everything from fudge to truffles to taffy to cookies, nonpareils, caramels, s’mores, turtles….the list goes on and on and on! Founded in 1984, everything is handmade with family recipes, so you can guarantee a tasty time.
This adorable, women-owned shop on Commercial Street is the definition of charming! Featuring a boutique, gallery, and tea bar, you can spend some time sipping, shopping, and admiring local art! Be sure to stop by this store that celebrates Ptown and enjoy all they have to offer.
Don’t forget! There is a farmer’s market every Saturday from 9am until 2pm right on Commercial Street, next to Town Hall! Local vendors showcase seasonal products; the farmer’s market is adored by locals and visitors alike.
