A few months ago I was waiting for a friend for lunch and stumbled across the most amazing local market. I am so thankful I was early that day! Herban Market is a locally owned market near the intersection of Franklin Road and Moores Lane on the Brentwood/Franklin line. (They are near Mac & Kate’s and Sopapillas, a few of my favorite local restaurants.)
Upon entering the market you will see a huge variety of olive oils and balsamic vinegar. I could live on olive oil so I was immediately excited and did not care if they had no other offerings in the entire store! (They do, don’t worry!) They have truffle oil, and so many herbed oils, and garlic infused, and then several varieties of olive oil ranging from mild to robust. (Can you tell I am excited about the oils?!) You can purchase them in three different sizes for what I feel is a very economical price. They are also bottled on demand which is super fun. Today I settled on the kalamata oil with the help of Matt. He owns the market along with his wife Ashlea. I came straight home and made a nice herbed focaccia to dip in it. Yum! Did I mention you get to sample as many of the oils as you want! Do you have your keys in hand ready to go right now? Wait; let me tell you about the other great finds!
