Freshest olive oil?
Hey again, I did a quick forum search for places that sell fresh olive oil, but nothing turned up in the archive.
I have heard a couple of times about people/places that will have bottles of really fresh, good olive oil, either made here or recently brought over in the last few months, not factory/company made.
Does anyone have the names of places I can call/ bike toothat are not too far out on the Danforth (I'm biking from young/dundas) or in the downtown core, along queen, or up to lansdown/bloor that might sell really excellent olive oil??
I know I saw a guy selling some out of a used record/ice cream/book shop down on queen west, but I can't remember the name of the shop now to call and make sure he has some before I go down there. Anyone happen to know what it's called?
Also, is there a "best" feta cheese out there? What about katamala olives..or other salad olives... is there a "best type/place to buy from"?
Thanks so much!!!!
Have an AWESOME YUMMY weekend everyone! Drink up the sun!
Olive trees only can be harvested once each year. In Greece, this will typically be in late October-November. Well stored though, it will stay fresh for a year or more. I get amazing organic, unfiltered, cold-pressed olive oil at the St. Jacob's market, which is obviously not convenient for you. However, they do sell mail-order.
Their website says that their oil is available at the St. Lawrence Market at A-Bisket-A-Basket on the lower level. As often as I go the SLM, I've never looked there to see if they have it.
