Patience pays off. Just plain great ice cream. Best on MV. Tripadvisor: Why require 100 words minimum if fewer says it all, this is an ice cream store for goodness sake.

We were happy to find Mad Martha's is still great. The ice cream is rich and creamy just like we remembered. The butter crunch was my favorite, but the snickers might be a close second. Much better than the other place in town. We had to try it and hands down Mad Martha's was the best.

Home made, super creamy, runny ice cream - big scoops so ask for a cup in case it starts to drip... I am now a convert from chocolate chip mint into their special peppermint ice cream.... indulgent!

Good ice cream with a wide range of flavors, but quite pricey. Nothing out of this world. I am sure the ice cream is just as good at any of the 3 other ice cream shops in Downtown Edgartown.

Our hotel was right up the street so we hit this place nightly. You can never go wrong with ice cream but the flavors here re excellent. My new find was snickers. Obsessed! Swirls of caramel with peanuts and fudge. Enjoy

This is another one of those Vineyard standbys--everyone tells you that you absolutely have to visit. The ice cream really is wonderful, and there are tons of flavor options. The portions are about right--although I can't imagine eating any more than a single scoop. The line can be fairly long, although it moves at a decent pace (I think we... More

There is probably a Mad Martha's at every corner not just in Edgartown, Great ice cream can't complain about that...

After a disappointing evening at Scoops we headed to Mad Martha's and were pleasantly surprised by the extensive array of kid-friendly flavors, cheerful staff and creamy, premium ice cream.

The Black Raspberry ice cream here is amazing. I'm sure there are others too, but I haven't found others on this level... I find most good, not great. So a solid choice for MV but doesn't stack up to the great ice cream places around the country where everything shines... Toscanini's for example.
