Where to buy high-quality olive oil and other foodie gifts in Palermo?

Pretty self-evident. Traveling to Spain next and need to bring some good gifts for friends. Any suggestions on where to find this stuff and what might be best to bring? Thanks for the help.

    I just came back from Palermo and visited "I Pecatucci di Mamma Andrea" http://www.mammaandrea.it/. I think there was some olive oil, but it focused on sweets, almond paste based cookies, many jams, marmalades, honeys and also interesting local liquers. There is also a nice wine shop next door, and that guy had more olive oil.

      Thanks Bugsey. I ended up shopping at a place called Cibus on E. Amari, which had a wide selection of stuff and good prices.
