How broccoli describes the summer population on Cape Cod
Years ago, the Luxx Concierge visited the green grocer at a local supermarket. The assignment: Try to quantify how the Cape changes the minute that the school year ends and the summer crowd arrives.
The green grocer explained it by how many cases of broccoli he orders from one day to the next: four times as much!
That anecdote is confirmed by the numbers below.
The vast majority of his broccoli buyers are second home owners or renters since visitors don’t tend to purchase vegetables for their hotel and motel rooms.’
The explosion of population for the summer ranges from a doubling in Sandwich – which is considered much more a fulltime community, and even a bedroom town to Boston – to Outer Cape towns that explode by 1,000 percent.
