Olive Oil and Olive Wood!

A Bit of the Mediterranean at Media Farmers Market!

Mediterra’s olive oils come from Les Moulins Mahjoub–a fourth generation owned and operated family company located in the fertile Mejerda Valley of North Central Tunisia. Their farm is situated in a unique micro climate that naturally defends and nourishes the farm, where they combine organic farming and traditional production methods. When choosing your olive oil, gather a few of Mediterra’s jarred specialty items as well to complement breads, cheeses, wine, and pastas. You’ll find preserved lemons, sun-dried tomatoes, harissa spreads, olives and olive spreads, fig jam, piquant orange slices, and so much more! They also carry balsamic vinegar. And if you need a something beautiful to serve it all on, look no further than their olive wood serving pieces with beautiful wood grains and shapes.
