Of course keep staying tuned for her partnership with the Village of Oak Park "This is Where I Shop!"
Shopping at local retailers during the holidays is like visiting with loved ones, or joining a party of old friends. Olive and Well owners and team members take a quick moment for a festive photo during the holiday rush.
After spending the past year being immersed in food and consumer brands, traveling the country visiting trade shows, spending hours researching global food trends, and reminiscing about my own history as a bakery and family business owner. Stahlbush Island Farms and the Chambers family is one of the standouts.
