About Us

The Olive Basket has been in business in the Athens, GA area since 2014, bringing the best oils and vinegars to northeast Georgia for over 6 years!

In June of 2020, the business was sold to a new owner, me!

After a career in IT and web software, I ran across the opportunity to purchase the store, and I thought it would be a great entrepreneurial project for my daughter and I, so I did it!

I have been learning a lot about the world of olive oil and balsamic vinegars and I have developed a taste for fresh olive oil made by small producers from around the world.  It is healthier and much tastier than anything I've ever found in a grocery store and I am trying to help spread the word about craft olive oil!

Thanks for stopping by, and please let us know if you have any questions!
