Lebherz Oil and Vinegar Emporium

Table 21 - Volt 2011-3962.jpg

Lebherz Oil and Vinegar Emporium, located in Frederick, MD, is a unique find in the DC area. During the last trip to Volt, we walked around and visited a few places. Appropriately named “L.O.V.E.”, owner Maggie Lebherz has a store on Market St. in downtown Frederick that invites customers to come in a taste their artisan olive oils and unique flavored vinegars. I know this sounds weird, to just be sampling vinegar, but it is kind of fun and you may find something you really like. The idea is you can pick out some great finishing oil (probably not ideal to cook with it) or vinegar – or get one of their recommended combinations to make yourself a really special oil and vinegar salad dressing. When we visited, Maggie (the owner) was in the store and showed us some of the more popular and best-liked oils/vinegars. She was really nice to talk to, and her mother made an appearance, too. I guess I’m not used to seeing the actual owners manning their store, but it is something I really appreciate.

This shop may be one of its kind in this area (for now), but just recently on my last trip to NYC, I saw a similar shop setup in Chelsea Market. The Filling Station had similar containers that customers could sample the oils and vinegars from the same paper cups. so whether it’s in NYC or in Frederick, MD, these oil and vinegar shops are definitely a good place to stop and find that unique gift or treat for yourself.
