Olive Oil Marketplace, is a local family owned and operated gourmet market serving Alton since 2011.
Inspired by the need to eat healthier, and cook with better ingredients, owners Julie and Tim Meeks discovered the health benefits and robust flavors produced while cooking with extra virgin olive oils and vinegars.
The couple decided to share that knowledge with customers showcasing: “It’s simply amazing how each oil or balsamic makes the food flavors explode,” along with the health benefits.
Olive Oil Marketplace offers customers the finest quality 100 percent Extra Virgin Olive Oils from top olive farms in Morocco, Tunisian, Italy, Chile, Spain, and Greece. Fill a bottle from Stainless Steel Fustis. Choose from traditional oils to those infused with natural flavors, such as: Roasted Garlic, Portobello & Garlic, Italian Herb, and Lemon Pepper Olive Oils. There are more than 30 flavored Olive Oils available.
To compliment the oils, Olive Oil Marketplace stocks over 30 flavored Balsamic Vinegars imported from Modena, Italy, which add an incredible punch to any dish, “Raspberry, Lemon, Mango, Chocolate, the Traditional, and many, many more flavors opening up a whole new world of cooking!”
In addition to the Oils and Balsamics, the store offers a variety of handmade flavored pastas, seasonings and rubs, gourmet condiments, sauces, gourmet flavored coffee, loose teas, kitchen & grilling gadgets, and unique gift ideas with new products arriving often.
The market is decorated in rich cherry wood cabinetry with tasting stations throughout. Guests are encouraged to not only taste the oils and balsamics, but interact and have fun creating new ways to mix and match picking up some recipe ideas available in the shop.
