Grocery Department

While Oliver's is famous for our perishable departments, the center of our store is filled with everything you'd find at a traditional grocery store, and all priced competitively.

Check out our weekly ad specials and compare our pricing, you'll be surprised.

One of our goals at Oliver’s is to provide our customers with resources so you can make an informed decision when shopping. Below is a link to an Olive Oil study we believe is important to read.

Oliver's Grocery Department

Lawrence Jacobs
Corporate Grocery Buyer

Since 1998 I have held many different positions at Olive’s Markets. I have worked as; a Bagger, Checker, Natural Foods Merchandiser, Dairy Clerk, Front End Lead, Front End Manger, Assistant Store Director and most recently, Conventional/Specialty Grocery Buyer. At every turn in my career I have had the pleasure of witnessing our owners make tough decisions that put people above profit and who invest not only in the facilities, but also in their employees and our community. Because this company has been so good to me, I come to work with a goal of treating our customers with the same dignity and respect that I have received. If I get a deal, you get a deal. If there is something you would like to see in our store that is not currently here, I will do my best to get it for you.


Where "Local" Means Sonoma County

To us Local means Sonoma County -- period. Not Marin, not Napa, and definitely not the state of California, as some of our competitors define it.

From the day we opened our doors in 1988, we’ve built our business on the simple premise that the best food and wine in the world are produced here, in Sonoma County. We didn’t feel like we were pioneers at the time, but as people have come to understand and embrace the value of locally grown and made food and the value of shopping locally, we realize we were part of the early days of the movement.

As a Sonoma County business, we’ve built enduring relationships with local growers, makers, and manufacturers, because they make the foods and wines we love. Many of them were getting started when we were. Now they are nationally known, but for us, they are still old friends who often delivered products to our Cotati store in their cars back in the late 1980s.

Along with local products being excellent choices for taste and quality reasons, buying locally also improves our local economy. The dollars you spend at local retailers buying local products support other local businesses and our tax base, too!
