The Pitted Olive, a new olive oil and vinegar tasting room and store in Jamesport will open its doors on Friday, July 18 at 10 a.m.

“I’m looking forward to great success. The word is out and I’m hoping that everything works well,” said owner and Jamesport transplant Linda Durgan. “I’m sure it will be a great store for the community.”

Durgan will offer olive oil tastings, olive-themed gifts, drinkable vinegars and even an olive oil refill program when the Main Road storefront opens this week. The store will also sell olive oil-based products from the Italian cosmetic company Olivella.

Durgan plans to offer an olive oil refill program through Ariston, a Connecticut-based distributor of Greek olive oil. She also wants to offer decanters, olive-themed linens and Himalayan salt blocks, as well as local breads and produce for tastings.

Vines & Branches in Greenport is currently the only other olive oil and vinegar shop on the North Fork.

The Pitted Olive is located at 1560 Main Road in Jamesport, next to Grana wood-fired pizza.
