September Newsletter, 2013 September 01 2013

Welcome to September, our end of summer, beginning of fall moments. We offer terrific transitional items, as we enjoy the end of  summer bounty, and begin thinking of fall treats.


The September special is spectacular and will be short-lived. Buy two 375ml or larger bottles and get the third bottle of equal or lesser value for 50% off. You heard right. Get a jump on refilling your pantry and/or holiday shopping. Just a reminder, Chanukkah starts early-- Wednesday, November 27th.


Join Chef Jasper Mirable and Mindy and David for a spectacular dinner featuring our products, Monday, September 16th, 7:00pm.

This four course event is 45.00 per person.  Bonus--Jasper's fantastic sauce is available for sale at Olive Tree, as well as his very own Jasper's Blend of olive oil. Jasper knows the good stuff! Come give it a try. 


We are delighted to offer Swoon cookies for purchase or order in our store. Swoon offers high end, expertly decorated or simply iced cookies in custom shapes. Swoon cookies will be available at Olive Tree starting September 4th. Swoon is pleased to have a south location to offer their delectable and gorgeous cookies, and it's our pleasure to collaborate with them. Our goal is to try to not buy them all ourselves!
