Gourmet Olive Oil & Vinegars
Newtown & Philadelphia, PA Stores
The Tubby Olive is nestled in the borough of historic Newtown, in Bucks County, just north of Center City Philadelphia, the Delaware Valley and an easy commute from New York City. It has been open since 2010 and is a charming food & gourmet shop that offers an extensive selection of traditional Extra Virgin, infused and organic olive oils and balsamic vinegars “on tap” for you to taste.
All of our traditional olive oils are laboratory tested for nutritional content and include Polyphenol, Free Fatty Acid, and Oleic Acid counts. These numbers demonstrate the health benefits and freshness of our products; we enjoy educating our customers about the nutritional aspects and culinary applications of our top quality line-up.
Specialty Foods & Gifts
The Tubby Olive has a large variety of specialty foods, local products and gourmet gifts. Our gift packages are handmade and beautifully presented; they contain our most popular oil and balsamic pairings and our complementary artisanal items. Custom gifts for any occasion are available as well. A large selection of recipes is displayed in our “Recipe Room” and is readily available to customers. Recipes range from simple to complex, for an array of foods, from appetizers to desserts
Area Events, Tastings and Guest Chefs
The Tubby Olive participates in area events and in-store demonstrations on a limited basis; the frequency of events is based upon restrictions due to health concerns in the community. We invite local “guest chefs” to present recipes and tastings of their products and to “talk food” with our customers. Tasting parties are available for small groups and are scheduled after hours.

About the Owners
Nancy and Michael Murray became sole owners of The Tubby Olive business in June, 2019, after being 50% owners since 2010. Their goal is to offer the finest, freshest, and most flavorful products in the marketplace, while providing outstanding customer service. This business venture was new for the Murrays, as their backgrounds were in unrelated fields; Nancy taught elementary students in 3 area school districts, and Michael was a self-employed financial trader and consultant in the Wall Street financial district. They enjoy spending time with their two daughters & grandchildren, and vacationing in their home in Florida.
My husband got me a few oils and balsamics and we have been in heaven…All I need is a fresh loaf of bread, some cheese, and any of their selections and I’m a happy girl! YUM!
