PLYMOUTH, AMERICA’S HOMETOWN

PART ONE OF A SERIES | SHOPPING & EATING

 

I am a lifelong native of Plymouth and I love nothing more than sharing my hometown with new residents! Plymouth, a classic New England town, has been called “America’s Hometown.”
Although it is the largest town area wise in MA with a population of about 58,000, it has a vibrant downtown area that still evokes that “small town feel.” There are a variety of restaurant venues, unique shops and a beautiful Cultural Arts Center showcasing the works of local artists and providing art classes for all ages and abilities. You can ride down Main Street and see many people dining outside and others just strolling and enjoying window shopping.

I encourage new residents to buy local to support our local businesses. Some of my “tasty” favorites include the Mayflower Brewing Company, Hearth wood-fired bread, offering delicious fermented dough breads baked on the floor of wood fired ovens; The Guilty Bakery, owners Amy and Krista, and Piece of Cake Bakery, owner Judy, both offering unique cakes and pastries. For shopping with a side of history, visit Lois and Jeannie at the 1640 Sparrow House, Plymouth’s oldest home, and the adjoining gallery and shop, featuring the finest American handmade crafts. Steven’s the Florist, owner Nancy and daughter-in law, Kerri, provide beautiful fresh flower arrangements for all occasions.
