There are many signs of spring, but one of the favorite signs for local foodies is the opening of the Cape Abilities Farm at 458 Route 6A in Dennis. The farm opens on May 1 with a wide variety of fresh, locally-grown produce, flowers and potted plants available.

Fresh lettuce will be available to purchase and the farm's award-winning tomatoes will be available by the middle of the month.

The farm will be open Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The farm is part of Cape Abilities, a non-profit organization that supports Cape Codders with disabilities. People with disabilities work at the farm in a variety of positions.

Also opening May 1 is Cape Abilities Farm to Table in Chatham.  The shop at 193 Main Street offers produce from the farm as well as locally crafted products, crafts, gifts, art and furniture.
