Port Plums & Newburyport Olive Oil

Karen and Katie Shernan

In December of 2014, Karen and Katie Shernan fulfilled a lifelong dream by purchasing Newburyport Olive Oil Company. These two ladies are longtime residents of Newburyport and lifelong foodies. The mother-daughter duo dreamed of owning a small business in this beautiful town – one that support local residents, merchants, and artisans, as well as provide healthful and delicious meal components for the community.
Immediately after acquiring the store, they insisted on absolute top quality and authenticity in everything sold and within two months achieved the coveted Ultra-Premium Extra Virgin Olive Oil designation.

Newburyport Olive Oil

In addition to stocking more than 65 Extra Virgin Olive Oils and Balsamic vinegars, we are constantly searching for uncommon and delectable flavors. On any given day you might find roasted walnut oil, wild beach plum jam, custom organic spice blends, truffle finishing salt, or even bourbon barrel aged maple syrup.

Port Plums

Step into the bright, airy space that is Port Plums, and you’re greeted by a seemingly endless array of beautiful and functional objects.  The studio lights glint off hammered copper pots from Italian cookware company Lagustina, and the bright colors of the Lékué microwavable popcorn bowls clamor for your attention. If you enjoy entertaining or need a special gift, Port Plums features beautiful serving pieces and many wonderful cooking accessories.

There's always something new and exciting to try so stop by and explore!
