Where to get new harvest olive oil?

  • 6

Where can you get new harvest 2012-2013 olive oil in Seattle? I’m much less concerned about the country or region of origin than the freshness and overall quality of the oil. I’ve been frustrated by the lack of harvest date on most bottles, so I was hoping a good purveyor could help steer me in the right direction. Any help you could provide would be much appreciated!

  1. I haven't ordered from these people--waiting for my budget to look a little better--but they're advertising a Spring 2013 pressing. I'd call that fresh.

    1. The Nov/Dec 2012 Kirkland brand Toscano is available at Costco. Don't know how it compares to the more expensive brands but get good reviews.

      1. There is a shop on Queen Anne hill called Olive OIL that sells at least 30 different olive oils from bulk containers - including 'new oils' from several countries.

        You can taste them ALL before purchasing as well.

        They also have infused oils, varying grades of Balsamic (bulk as well), salts, jams and pestos.

        Top of the hill on QA Ave. I haven't been yet, but have heard raves!

        1. If you are downtown I would try either Big John PFI

          Or 11 Olives in Pacific Place
