Olive Pit, Corning

#86 of 662 in Shopping in California
Must see · Gift & Specialty Shop · Shopping
50 years ago, Pete and Ann Craig displayed several jars of olives on a small shelf of the original Olive Pit – a frosty and hamburger stand – to see if any one would be interested in buying their locally grown, locally produced olives. People were quick to purchase the olives and a Corning tradition was born.

Today the Craig family, including Ann, still serves travelers with tasty frosties and delicious olive burgers – their store has expanded five times to meet the demands of hungry visitors. The inventory has also expanded and now includes a variety of Olives, Olive Oils, Nuts, Vinegars, Mustards and Gift Items – local products that will liven up any meal, from a quiet meal for two to a large gathering of friends and family.
Olive Pit is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our , international travel planner Edition.

  • The Olive Pit is a great stop when traveling on I-5, with clean bathrooms, a great cafe with very interesting milk shakes, and very good shopping.  more »

  • I've been going to the Olive pit in Corning for over 30 years. I always enjoy looking through their selection of Olive's nuts wine and sauces! I know they have ice cream and other things too but I always just love the stuffed olives! It was relatively busy but then again it was a beautiful Sunday morning. Easy to find just off i-5 suggest going there if you've never been!
  • Great place. We love it. Huge selection of items. We took about dozen things home with us. And they do more than just Olives. Clean, nice looking place. Friendly and helpful staff. Reasonable prices. We love it.
