Gourmet marketplace

 

Taste your way through the aisles of Queen Creek Olive Mill’s marketplace by sampling their signature, co-pressed, and infused oils. Meyer lemon, bacon, and chocolate flavored olive oil awaits you and your taste buds. You’ll find more than just olive oil in their marketplace, as it is filled with many local, unique treasures including their Olivespa line of home and body products and treats from partnering businesses in the area. Bonus: They’ll ship what you purchase, so if you traveled to Mesa City Limitless® with just a piece of carry-on luggage you won’t miss out on delectable souvenirs.
