We opened at the Kensington, Maryland farmers market in 2004. Since
then, we've focused on one thing—offering you the freshest hand-crafted extra virgin olive oil from California.
Our producers, whom we've grown up with over the past ten years, are small, family-owned farms in the coastal and Sierra foothills of California. It's their craftsmanship and passion for making real and fresh extra virgin olive that you taste in every bottle we sell.
Importantly, unlike the olive oil shops popping up everywhere today, when you visit us, you won't go home with a bottle of olive oil filled
from a steel tank.
Instead, your bottle of olive oil will come sealed and labeled by the family farm that produced it. Only this way can you really know who pressed your oil, when they pressed it, and
where they pressed it. In the slippery world of olive oil—without federal or even state oversight—these
basic facts are essential.
We encourage you to learn more about our olive oil producers. They're making some of the best extra virgin olive oil
in the world today.
take a moment to explore our site and discover how your real, fresh extra virgin olive oil is made.
I hope to see you at one of our seven farmers markets in Maryland and DC, or at Union Market in northeast Washington.
Stop by for a taste soon!
