We offer a wide variety of unique balsamic vinegars and olive oils, featuring smooth, rich flavors of aged and white balsamic vinegars and an extensive variety of infused and imported olive oils.

Our tasting room enables you to taste the various offerings, so you can determine your favorites, whether taking home or giving as a gift. We also feature a unique assortment of hand-stuffed olives, olive spreads, and much more!


Established in 2011.

We began The Olive Shoppe for very personal reasons.  Our daughter at the age of 2 was diagnosed with Juvenile Diabetes, which required a lifestyle change.  We began using olive oils and balsamic vinegars in lieu of other less healthy oils and butter in our everyday cooking.  We quickly discovered that eating healthy can be quite tasty and were amazed that our children were eating vegetables and other foods that they ordinarily didn’t like.

Being from the area, we decided to open The Olive Shoppe in 2011 to share a healthy and tasty alternative for cooking.  At the East Coasts’ original gourmet tasting bar, we strive to give our customers an experience that brings food and fun together.  Darya often says our bar is the “healthiest you’ll ever belly up to.”  Being like bartenders but with olive oils and balsamic vinegars, we encourage our patrons to try many different flavors.  We also enjoy sharing different uses and ideas of how to use our products in your everyday cooking.

Since opening our Barefoot Landing store in North Myrtle Beach, we’ve added store at The Market Common in Myrtle Beach and at the historic Cotton Exchange in downtown Wilmington   So when you’re at the beach, stop by The Olive Shoppe– Tasters Welcome! We’d love for you to have a tasting experience that will dazzle the senses like no other.
