Olive Cart

424 Phoenix Rd
South Haven Charter Township, 49090
This little shop reminds me of an olive oil shop we had in Chicago. The walls are lined with different flavored oils and vinegars to try. The sell tons of dips and olives too. It's a great shop to stop in for a gift or a sample. They also have other kitchen type gifts like salad dressings mixers and such. The owner of the shop was also crazy knowledgeable about the different olive oils and their regions. Make sure to stop by.
I loooove this place. My husband and I discovered their location in St. Joseph a couple of years ago, and now it is a must-visit destination every time we are in SW Michigan. They have an incredible selection of oil and balsamic vinegar, all of which you can try. You may not know where to start, but their friendly staff (including the owner!) are always very helpful about mixing up new and delicious recommendations. They also carry a mixture of salsas, glazes, jams, and more, with samples out for you to try. Every time we go we spend more than we anticipated, but we love their items so much that we are always desperate to re-stock. We definitely recommend a visit, your salads, pasta, meats and more will be so much better after you do!
Olive Cart not only has excellent customer service, but an awesome selection of flavored balsamic vinegars and (of course) olive oils. Most of the vinegars and oils are lined up in cans around 2 of the walls, with a few stations in the middle of the floor, and there are plenty of mini cups for tasting. On the other wall are spice mixes, which they have a few samples of out as well. I recommend at least trying the watermelon balsamic, which sounds repulsive, but is actually quite tasty. Per the guy helping us, it goes great in lemonade, which I can't even imagine! In fact, if you want recommendations for any sort of combination, don't hesitate to ask because they will make sure to find something your taste buds will enjoy!
