New Debuts in Taylor this Weekend

5 May

If you’ve been craving a drive out to Taylor, this coming weekend is the weekend to go!

In addition to the Taylor’s Farmer Market holding its first sale day of the summer on Saturday, the new Olivia’s Corner Market, which officially opens for business on Thursday in the former location of Emileigh’s Table, will also be serving a full breakfast and lunch for all of you hungry shoppers on Saturday.

For those familiar with Olivia’s Food Emporium on the Square, owner Mary Catherine Guest is now bringing her love of Italian cooking to the Plein Air neighborhood of Taylor, where she’ll be serving up authentic Italian food, buffet style. Dishes you can look forward to include lasagna, stuffed artichokes, veal parmesan, meatballs, stuffed rolled meat, eggplant parmesan and more. Mary Catherine also plans to offer what she says is one of the best burgers around as well as many of the dips and spreads that are currently found at Olivia’s Food Emporium.

The upper floor of Olivia’s Corner Market will be transformed into an event space with a ballroom, and there are plans for events to be held both inside and outside of the restaurant in the near future. A brown-bag option is also in the works.

Hours for Olivia’s Corner Market are: Thursday/Friday (lunch), Saturday (breakfast/lunch), Sunday (lunch).

The Taylor Farmer’s Market will be held 8:00 a.m. until noon on Saturday with more than two dozen vendors selling produce and plants, a performance by Chauncey and The Beast, and Kidfest hosted by Plein Air Montessori.

    Went to Olivia’s in Taylor on Saturday night, March 3rd and the restaurant was slammed full with patrons that just loved the food. Had 3 different appetizers including fried hot tamales (different) and the best stuffed mushroom appetizer I have had in years. Some had steak (great) and some had fish (great) AND FUN WAS HAD BY ALL BECAUSE YOU CAN TAKE YOUR OWN WINE………..Staff was busy but got it done. CANNOT WAIT TO GO BACK AGAIN. Tried some CDP’s with the steaks and they went well. Take your own stemware for now along with cloth napkins as they only have paper napkins. HOPEFULLY THAT WILL CHANGE SOON JUST LIKE HONEY BEE BAKERY WHICH NOW SERVES DINNER WITH CLOTH NAPKINS AND YOU CAN TAKE YOUR OWN WINE THERE TOO……………..
