Gourmet Olive Oil & Vinegars

Newtown & Philadelphia, PA Stores

The Tubby Olive operates two locations in southeast Pennsylvania; Newtown and Philadelphia at Reading Terminal Market. The original store that opened in 2010 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. Our charming food & gourmet shop offers an extensive selection of traditional, infused and organic olive oils and balsamic vinegars on tap for you to taste.

In 2012, we opened our second location in the historic Reading Terminal Market, one of America’s largest and oldest public markets.  This popular food market, of close to 80 merchants, is housed in a 1893 National Historic Landmark building at 12th and Arch Streets, right across from the the Jefferson stop of the Septa Train Station. Reading Terminal Market regularly bustles with activity, as a popular traveler’s destination and “go to” spot for those attending conventions at the nearby Pennsylvania Convention Center. The Tubby Olive has become a favorite shopping haunt for visitors and locals.

Specialty Foods & Gifts

We have carefully selected a large variety of specialty food and gift products. We also hand make gift packages that contain our popular oils, vinegars and gourmet food items. Our wide variety of recipes are readily available for customers; they 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 many area events throughout the year, including art shows, holiday bazaars, fundraisers, and corporate & hospital presentations. We invite “guest chefs” from the area into our stores to offer samplings of products and to demonstrate new recipes that use our olive oils and vinegars. We also open our store during off hours for private tasting parties.  There is always something going on our Tubby Olive locations!

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 have two daughters, and enjoy their vacation 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!
