West Tisbury Farmer’s Market- a must on Saturday morning. We nibble and sample our way from stand to stand. For a pick-me-up we love Chilmark Coffee Company's cold brew, and for a sweet treat, honey from Island Bee Company.
Mermaid Farm-A farm stand selling the best dairy on the island. Our dear friend Jill recommended the hidden gem in Chillmark. Driving up to a tiny, shingled shack, we enter the painted door to find a refrigerator full of homemade yogurt, milk, feta cheese and bottles of mango lassi. The fruity, creamy drinks are a perfect treat as we drive home, brainstorming what to do with the thick yogurt. Inspired by the rocky Mediterranean-style beach at Great Rock Bight, we whip up a Tzatziki for grilled lamb kebabs.
The best way to end a Martha’s Vineyard getaway is a beach-side BBQ. We pack up our car with coolers, beach chairs and grills and head to the beach to meet a mix of friendly faces. At this ultimate potluck dinner, we feast on grilled mussels, striped bass, clam chowder, steak tips and s’mores. Our Martha’s Vineyard local friends have perfected the art of the beach cookout.
