As it turns out, Microsoft’s main campus hosts a farmer’s market on Tuesdays, during the summer time. It is when locals come to show and sell flowers, pies, ice cream and various other items that are produced near by. Among them, 11Olives company and their olive oils and balsamic vinegars.

I was on my way to get flowers for my wife, but the folks managed to make me sample out some of their products. The combination of herb infused olive oil and garlic balsamic vinegar was just perfect! It also pleases me to support more local business and at least think that it will make the world just a bit better place.

So a bit later that olive oil was running low and the easiest way to get more was to order more online @ http://www.11olives.com.

Package finally arrived, but there had been no tracking. Thus it was a bit of a surprise.

Minimum order of getting free shipping was about $75. This meant that it was better to order multiple bottles at once.

Small collection in all it’s glory!
