The vegan searches quadrupled in the 5 years between 2012 and 2017, according to Google search. It now gets almost 3 times more interest than vegetarian and gluten free searches, so we wanted to make sure that if you’re living a plant based lifestyle, the island had you covered with delicious places to eat and drink while you’re visiting. If you’re vegan and coming to Martha’s VIneyard, we have done the research for you and listed below some of the most delicious plant-based restaurants, cafes, and coffee shops on MV.
Most coffee shops on the island carry non-dairy milks on their menu, mostly soy and almond, while you can find some oat and coconut milk as well. Chilmark Coffee Co. makes their coffee drinks with oat milk at the West Tisbury Farmers Market, also a must when you’re visiting.
