This is a list kindly compiled and shared by Becky Carter from Isle of Mull Cottages. Individual businesses’ circumstances can changed, and may have changed since this was written in June 2020, so please bear that in mind and contact producers, eating places and suppliers to check what they are doing – just in case they are closed or what they offer has changed.
Food for Thought
Food boxes | Ready meals | General groceries | Takeaways | Desserts | Local Produce
With the changes brought about by recent events, we thought visitors to the island this year might be interested in some of the wonderful produce available on the island, which in many cases can be delivered to your door this year, or picked up from a collection point, minimising contact with others.
