Independent food deliveries in Manchester

(Last updated Mar 2021)

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, here I will list wholesalers, caterers and places in Greater Manchester you can grab some tasty food from. I try to highlight those businesses whom I already love as well as any business which do not use popular delivering apps such as Just Eat, Deliveroo or Uber Eats. Such platforms charge a large commission which means you either pay more for your food, or the trader eats up that costs. Please support local if you can!

I’ll be updating this as and when I find new suppliers. If I have missed anyone off the list, feel free to contact me on my social media or email hello@elsaeats.com

Looking for more locals and stuff available nationwide? Please check out the Ordering In list on Gin Fuelled Bluestocking.
