The Queen Creek Olive Mill is coming to Tucson’s La Encantada next week, saving loyal Tucson followers a 90-minute drive to the Phoenix area.

“We have a lot of support from Tucson, a lot of visitors from Tucson, and we’ve been getting requests to have a presence in the Tucson market,” said Robert Holmes, the mill’s general manager and head of marketing.

This will be the olive oil producer’s fourth retail outlet; two other stores are in the Phoenix area and, tucked into the Queen Creek olive orchards, is a warehouse store that includes a casual restaurant.

Holmes said the La Encantada store will occupy 800 square feet and include a tasting room. In addition to the mill’s complete line of olive oils, vinegars and beauty products, it will stock products from Superstition Coffee and Valley Honey Co.

Holmes said the store, 2905 E. Skyline Drive, will be open during La Encantada’s hours: 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Mondays through Wednesdays, until 8 p.m. Thursdays through Saturdays and from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sundays.
