We love shopping with the small businesses in North Vancouver because they’re what makes our community so vibrant. The small-business owners in our community are our friends and neighbours. They go the extra mile, and they care about our community.
They deserve our support! This month, we’re shouting out a wonderful business located right here in the Delbrook Plaza – Dundarave Olive Company.
I’ve been a fan of Dundarave Olive Company’s products from afar for years. I frequently shop at local farmers’ markets, and I discovered their lemongrass vinegar at a market many moons ago.
It was amazing. I remember returning to the same market the following year and being disappointed to find that Dundarave Olive Market wasn’t there. When we moved to Delbrook Plaza, I was so excited to discover this is their home too!
About Dundarave Olive Company
Dundarave Olive Company is a family-owned and -run business. They were founded in the early 2000s with a mission to join a “flavour revolution” and reinterpret their love for Mediterranean cuisine. They played around with flavours and fillings to create some unique options.
Today, they offer many types of olives, olive oils, dips, and fruit and balsamic vinegars. All of Dundarave Olive Company’s products are made to order from scratch right here in their commercial kitchen in the Delbrook Plaza. Their olives are hand-stuffed, oiled, and brined fresh on-site – and they’re absolutely delicious.
Why We Love Them
Besides the fact that their lemongrass vinegar is divine, we love that the owners of Dundarave Olive Company are passionate about supporting other local businesses in our area. They opt to sell most of their products exclusively at local markets to keep engaged with the community. They believe in high-quality, handcrafted products, and that’s something we can get behind!
Dundarave Olive Company offers something for everyone. They even have olives stuffed with vegan cheeses! Keep an eye on their seasonal flavours, which change regularly. Their olive oils and vinegars would make incredible gifts for the foodies in your life.
Tips for First-Time Customers
Dundarave Olive Company doesn’t have a storefront that you can visit, so be sure to check the schedule on their website to find out which farmers’ markets and events they’ll be participating in. A few local stores also sell some of their products, but you’ll find the full lineup at the markets.
The lemongrass vinegar is my favourite product – definitely be sure to try it, and pick up some olives! No matter what you choose, you can’t go wrong. I’ve been trying new products lately, and they are all delicious.
