An island fixture for 18 years, longstanding Martha’s Vineyard home goods shop Midnight Farm has moved across the street from its original Vineyard Haven location to 44 Main Street. Upon entering the new shop, one is struck by its old-time emporium feel: Sturdy farm tables are arrayed with scented candles, beautiful home and garden books, and colorful tabletop accessories, while well-worn floorboards, patinaed plastered walls, and an antique stained-glass window heighten the sense you have just entered a bygone era. And be assured, you won’t find the island’s ubiquitous seashell mirrors, or coastal blue and white upholstered fabrics here.

Midnight Farm gets its eclectic design sensibilities from owner and interior designer Tamara Weiss. (Her longtime friend and business partner is Vineyard resident and singer/songwriter, Carly Simon.) Weiss sources one-of-a-kind items from India, Morocco, and France to bring color and whimsy to island homes.
