Independent Food Producers and Shops Delivering Food During Covid19 in the UK

LAST UPDATED: May 14th, 2020 Getting groceries delivered has become a little difficult with supermarkets doing their best but stretched to their limits. This is the perfect time to support smaller producers who have lots available to send to you.  Many of these are farms that sell direct to the consumer or online shops. Some supplied the restaurant trade but with social distancing and most of us staying at home (and please please do social distance and stay at home if you can at all), they are now selling direct to the consumer.  If you are an independent producer or retailer who should be on this list (in the UK and Ireland) please do let me know! Please email me a short snappy description on hello@eatlikeagirl.com – who you are / what you sell / how to buy – no marketing, just bare bones please. Please ask around your local community for producers that you can buy direct from too. Many don’t have a route to market and are really worried. We can all help each other. Note –  I have not tried everything on this list and these are not endorsements. Where I am familiar with the product or company and would personally recommend, I will say.  For cooking inspiration don’t forget there are hundreds of easy and very tasty recipes for home cooks on Eat Like a Girl. I have collated a few lists for you to get started with. 9 Recipes for Homemade Bread, Flatbreads and Pizza Easy Recipes for Handmade Pasta and Dried Pasta 39 Recipes for Lockdown Solo Cooking Don’t forget that you can sign up for email notifications of new recipes in the top right of the page.  Back to the producers and retailers!
