MEET THE MEMBER: Newburyport Olive Oil Co.

As longtime residents of the Newburyport area, they always dreamed of opening a food related business in this beautiful town – one that would support local residents, merchants and artisans as well as provide healthful and delicious meal components.


Immediately after acquiring the store they insisted on absolute top quality and authenticity in their products and their decision was a success.  Within two months, their product lines were top seller, and everything sold. In addition, Newburyport Olive Oil Co. achieved the coveted Ultra-Premium Extra Virgin Olive Oil Designation. The store is quickly becoming a favorite place to shop among locals and visitors.

The new owners, Karen and Katie currently stock more than 65 Extra Virgin Olive Oils and balsamic vinegars, and continually seek out local sources of unusual and delicious tastes. On any given day you might find roasted walnut oil, wild beach plum jam, custom organic spice blends, truffle finishing salt, or even bourbon barrel aged maple syrup. It seems there is something new and delicious every week!


Stop by and see their plans for expansion currently underway, as they have acquired additional space next door. They will soon be offering including cookware and kitchen utensils with unique artisan flair.
