The Happy Olive -Fairhope, Alabama

Today, we were on another walking tour of downtown Fairhope, Alabama. After stopping by the Spice and Tea Exchange, one of our favorite stores, we decided to drop in across the street at The Happy Olive to see what they had to offer us. We were looking for honey to go with our tea. Something different than the regular honey, and we had heard that The Happy Olive had the most delicious honey. So, we stepped inside to find a beautiful space that offered a wide variety of flavors and items, from Cinnamon Creamed Honey to Chocolate Cinnamon Creamed Honey to Stingin Sweet Honey. The choices were endless. Not to mention the other items we found, there were olives stuffed with almonds, flavored balsamic vinegar, and flavored olive oils. From pickles to mustard, seasonings to condiments and dips. We were intrigued and amazed at the variety. It is also just a beautiful store to wander around. Gifts and other accessories are also available. Just so many amazing flavors. Here is what we found at the Happy Olive.

And if you are interested in cooking classes, Mary Ann from Fairhope’s iconic Mary Ann’s Deli is in the kitchen hosting cooking demonstrations every other Saturday. The Happy Olive that we visited is located at 314 De La Mare Ave in Fairhope.
