Independent businesses to order food and essentials from

It’s a challenging time for everyone just now.  All over the news, large corporations are looking for bailouts from the government, but what can we do to help the smaller ones?  The ones who have to wait to get help from the government months down the line and are struggling in what were already financially challenging times.  Not only does buying directly from producers help their bottom lines but you will also probably get what you are looking for.  How often are the shelves bare in the larger stores, yet smaller shops have stock and are eager to help.

Please let us know in a comment or by email if you know of a producer who is selling direct and we will add them to the list.
