One of my favourite shops to visit, the Olive Oil Outpost is so much more than olive oil! This wonderful little shop has a beautiful selection of wine, cheese, infused oils and balsamic vinegars of all different flavours. I have bought some of the most awesome lemon balsamic and coconut balsamic vinegar.

Located at 401 Pine Ave, Anna Maria, FL 34216, USA and just a short trolley ride from Anna Maria Island Condo Rentals – 601 Gulf Dr. N. – Anna Maria Island, Florida 34217.

One visit I found some Himalayan salt, artisan pasta, honey and Ethiopian coffee. At this unique shop you can expect to find everything from, jellies, organic products, artisan pasta, a coffee bar and various gift items.

They also bring in fresh fruit – locally picked strawberries were just coming in when we went last time, and they’re the best I’ve ever had! They regularly stock limes, lemons, onion, squash, and the biggest best green peppers.

As for cheese, seems like every time I go there has been a great selection of cheese out for tasting. And an olive bar. Loads of pasta and sauces and condiments.

When you don’t feel like cooking they have whatever you need for a fabulous meal. Pick up some cheese, local pickles, bread, oranges, honey and don’t forget the wine. Makes for an easy and delicious meal!

We have enjoyed the wine tastings here. Friendly and informative. The wine is usually from one or two places, mostly Italy, but not all. The owners come and discuss their wineries and the wines. They also provide a few trays of tasty small bites for sampling. bar is good and reasonably priced. Very enjoyable low key approach.

Friday is bread day and they have all kinds, ciabatta, Tuscan rounds and rings, semolina, baguettes, focaccia, tomato bread, almond ring, pepperoni rolls and more! The order sometimes gets delayed because they travel to a bakery in St. Petersburg to bring it back fresh.

Depending on the traffic they are sometimes later getting back to the Island. If you come after 1:00 PM it should be there and there should be lots. Trust me, it is worth the wait!

Added attractions: Outside areas to sit and on chilly nights a separate seating area around a fire pit!  Ice water with lemon inside and very friendly service.

This place is just wonderful! A little gem right here on Anna Maria Island with friendly staff offering great products that are reasonably priced. Doesn’t get any better than that!
