Blue Olive Market

Opened in January 2014, Blue Olive Market is the only Greek and Mediterranean-inspired eatery and market that proudly offers made-from-scratch, chef-centric prepared foods for people who live, work, shop and entertain in Manhattan.

“We use fresh local and organic foods whenever possible as well as the finest Mediterranean imports in our dishes. We stock our shelves with hand selected gourmet and artisanal products that we enjoy cooking with in our recipes, and hope you will too. At Blue Olive Market, we keep our focus on what’s important to our guests; quality food, hospitality, and convenience”.
