Our Favorite Olive Oil Stores near Albuquerque

Shop Olive Oil Stores near Albuquerque to Add Flavor to Your Favorite Meals 

When your recipes call for olive oil, several local shops can help you prepare your favorite dishes. They offer a wide range of flavors and tastings, so you can try them before you buy. The olive oil stores near our Albuquerque apartments include:

ABQ Olive Oil Company

Founded in 2013, the ABQ Olive Oil Company is owned by a husband and wife team. Ralph and Carol offer the freshest gourmet and extra virgin olive oils in town. They change the selection every six months, and depending on the time of year, the oils come from the Northern or Southern hemispheres. Flavors include eureka lemon fused, wild fern leaf dill, and cilantro & roasted onion. The shop also features specialty salts, aged balsamic vinegar, and gift sets.

Old Town Olive Oil & Vinegar

When Nael decided to open a shop that promoted healthy eating, education, and customer interaction, Old Town Olive Oil & Vinegar opened its doors. Nael offers high-quality products and partners with local chefs and restaurants to offer fun cooking demonstrations. When you stop in the shop, you can enjoy freshly baked bread covered with olive oil and vinegar samples. The friendly staff is always ready to help. They provide pairing suggestions and enjoy sharing their favorite recipes. Olive oil flavors include black truffle, Serrano honey, and roasted walnut. 

Santa Fe Olive Oil & Balsamic Co.

Michael Aranda grew up in a family that loved food. He later studied food and culture in Europe and realized the quality of olive oil was low in the United States. Michael returned home and opened the Santa Fe Olive Oil & Balsamic Co. He stores all products below 70 degrees to ensure freshness. Flavored olive oils include Tuscan herb, New Mexico green chile, and mesquite-smoked. Though based in Santa Fe, they offer easy online ordering, so you can still support this local New Mexico business.
