Olive Oil Marketplace, we are a local family owned and operated Gourmet Market since 2011, located in Downtown Alton at 108 W. 3rd Street Alton, IL. 62002 and Downtown Belleville at 18 E Main Street Belleville, IL. 62220.
Inspired by the need to eat healthier, and cook with better ingredients, we have discovered the health benefits and robust flavors produced while cooking with Extra Virgin Olive Oils and Balsamic Vinegars.
We are proud to offer our customers some of the finest quality 100% Extra Virgin Olive Oils from top Olive Farms World Wide (Morocco, Egypt, Italy, Spain, and Greece) infused with natural flavors. Choose from traditional to those infused with natural flavors, such as: Roasted Garlic, Portobello & Garlic, Italian Herb, and Lemon Pepper Olive Oils. There are more than 30 flavored Olive Oils available.
To complement the oils, we also stocks over 30 flavored Balsamic Vinegars imported from Modena, Italy. “Raspberry, Lemon, Mango, Chocolate, the Traditional Aged, and many, many more flavors open up a whole new world of cooking!”
In addition to the Oils and Balsamics, we also offers a variety of Handmade Flavored Pastas, Seasonings and Rubs, Gourmet Flavored Coffee, Loose Teas, Bakeware, Kitchen & Grilling Gadgets, and unique gift ideas with new products arriving often
The market is decorated in rich cherry wood cabinetry with tasting stations throughout. Guests are encouraged to, not only taste the Olive Oils and Balsamics, but interact and have fun creating new ways to mix and match picking up some recipe ideas available in the shop.
