Farm · Tourist Spot
Morning Glory Farm, started in 1975 by James and Deborah Athearn, grows about 60 acres of vegetables and small fruits here on the island of Martha's Vineyard. Small successive plantings of a wide variety of crops supply the farmstand, which opened in 1981.

These crops include sweet corn, lettuce, carrots, beets, tomatoes, melons, potatoes, beans, squash, pumpkins and more. Our "Morganically grown" herb garden provides a full assortment of culinary herbs. We also raise two acres of flowers and small plantings of strawberries, blueberries, peaches and beach plums. Our beef and pork are raised in Edgartown and Chilmark, and our henhouse is just down the road from the farmstand.

  • Morning Glory Farm is one of the best farms on island in my opinion. A family farm, they supply ingredients to so many island homes and restaurants. Thankful because I live just five minutes away! If you're visiting, it's a must because it's a great spot to stock up for food if you're staying in a rental and wanting to cook local island produce. Also a great farm stand to pick up beach food - they have everything from a delicious salad bar to baked goods, cheeses, crackers, charcuterie, and so much more. Need peanut butter? They grind their own and it comes in a glass jar (yei no plastic!); need flowers for a dinner, they have them; want some beach plum jam, they make their own - also their strawberry jam is amazing! Plus they have ready. to eat dinners like tacos, meatloaf, macaroni and cheese, and so much more, easy to reheat when you're on the go. Morning Glory Farm - definitely a favorite on island!
  • This farm stand has everything you need, from beautiful produce to eggs, meat, cheese, and desserts! Their pies are outstanding! Of course, it's not inexpensive, but it's worth every penny to avoid the chaos at Stop and Shop. Morning Glory is a little Haven of happiness!
