Our retail store, located in the center of the Historic District of Old Town Cottonwood, has become a dream come true that started for us in the spring of 2010. Main Street in Old Town Cottonwood is a pedestrian friendly two blocks of historic looking shops that include four wine tasting rooms, featuring Arizona's finest wines, popular restaurants, an artesian bakery, and an eclectic collection of clothing, antique and specialty shops.

Each of our 20 varieties of olive oils are specifically selected and imported from both the northern and southern hemispheres to provide our in-store guests and on-line shoppers with the most recently produced and healthiest oils available anywhere. We only purchase our fresh olive oils in small batches to insure ultimate freshness. This is why our selection of imported olive oils will change from season to season.

We also import a variety of white and red balsamic condiment vinegars from Modena, Italy. Each of these are aged up to 18 years produced using the traditional Solera method yielding a rich smooth product unlike balsamic vinegars found in your grocery store.

We have also sourced and sell a delicious White Truffle Oil (Liquid Gold) and Black Truffle Sea Salt along with other unique culinary delights.

If you are looking for a gift but aren't sure what to buy - we offer gift certificates good towards any purchase - and they never expire! Check our website often as there is always something new, including seasonal products and recipe and gift ideas.

Helpful owner, especially for the unadulterated EVOO lovers

Bought a bunch of bottles of plain olive oil and spouts, still working my way through them. They get their stuff from Veronica Foods.

I have never gone olive oil or balsamic vinegar tasting... I guess I did not really know it was a "thing". I had a wonderful time, though! Linda helped me out and she was so enthusiastic about all of the products and was very kind and helpful. I just expected to go into the shop and find a gift for... More

I had the joy of visiting Verde Valley Olive Oil Traders recently, specifically to experience their widely renowned fudge and it didn't disappoint! To refer to it as a rare and delicious treat would be a gross understatement! Notwithstanding the fact that my wife isn't "a fudge person," I decided to take some home to her. At worst, I'd be...

So we have Olive Oil shops near where we live and we were not even going to go in. But I am sooo glad we did! The fresh fudge sign on the door did the trick. We talked with the owner and she explained how they make fresh batches weekly. So many wonderful flavors to choose from. We decided on... More

While shopping and exploring the shops of Cottonwood, my family and I stopped in Verde Valley Olive Oil Co. We stopped in for the fudge (and Oh my, am I glad we did). This place makes some very good homemade fudge in house. We were greeted by very nice people who offered to let us sample any of their oils... More

One heckova find in Cottonwood AZ. They have some of the best selection of infused olive oils and Balsamic vinegars. I bought a dozen combos with intention of using it for artisanal bread dips, spreads and cooking. Some favs are cilantro/ sweet onion oil with lemongrass mint balsamic to baste BBQ meats , grapefruit oil with lemon oil etc. FABULOUS!... More

So glad we did. They also have amazing fudge. We walked out with 3, but when we got back home to Mesa, we wished we bought... More

We were met with a knowledgeable, enthusiastic person who explained all the oils and vinegars, guiding us to unique combinations. Each taste was absolutely wonderful and the selection was the best we'd ever seen. Very highly recommended!

There are so many choices and the selections are varied and very interesting. The taste of various oils is very appealing and the browsing around around is a wonderful experience. The folks who run the store sure know how show the products.

They sell olive oil and balsamic vinegar in many flavors and types. You can also sample it to see which you like. If you are mixing it you the lady at the store will mix the vinegar and oil chosen to see what it is like together. They are very well versed and helpful. They also have four flavors of... More
