Local Shop Profile: Oh Olive! Libertyville
If you have a foodie on your list, then today’s store is one not to be missed! I love going in here to sample the oils or get gift ideas for my husband. It reminds me of our travels through Italy and our pre-kid days when we cooked gourmet meals. One of the owners, Mary Koval, shared some inside details on what makes Oh, Olive! so unique.
Oh, Olive! is a small family-owned business that takes great pride in its stores, the people who work in them, and the quality products they provide to our customers. Whenever possible, they try to work with other small businesses to promote their success as well as our own. In this way, they feel they are doing their part to preserve the American dream that has been the inspiration of business in this country forever.
Oh, Olive! loves to cook and to teach customers how to cook with olive oil. They only stock the freshest and highest quality Delizia extra virgin olive oil in their stores and invite you to taste the oils and judge for yourself. Besides their exceptional flavor, you will also benefit from the many health properties of fresh olive oil. Stop by and have a cup of tea, the door is always open, and they love to chat.
Oh, Olive! also provides an extensive selection of the finest aged vinegars from Modena, Italy which includes 23 different varieties such as pomegranate, tangerine, grapefruit, black cherry, and red apple.”
The shop also carries pasta, pasta sauces, spices, and rubs, as well as a large selection of whole fruit and loose leaf teas, chocolates, stuffed olives, salsas, and more! You could put together multiple different gift baskets for any kind of foodie in your life! The experienced staff is so knowledgeable on their products they can help even a kitchen disaster like me find exactly what they need for the gourmet chef (or chef wannabe) in their life.
