Local food suppliers

Here is a list of local suppliers who can deliver produce direct to your door. Many people are struggling to book home deliveries/ click and collect services with large supermarket chains, ordering from local suppliers is a great way to reduce social contact and support local businesses. And the produce is often much fresher and tastier as a bonus! Fruit and Veg suppliers Mega Box (on Facebook)  Based in Glossop. This supplier has fantastic reviews for service and quality of produce. Bakeries Nice Buns Bakery (on Facebook)  – Based in Stockport. Our staff can personally recommend this bakery – the bread and buns is fresh and delicious and service is very good.
