Local Produce


The Food Assembly - linking local producers and customers

Thanks to an innovative new scheme, produce from farmers and foodmakers in Argyll and Lochaber can now be ordered online and picked up on Thursday afternoons in Oban.  Full details of this award-winning food community can be found by visiting their website at https://thefoodassembly.com/en/assemblies/9358.

Local farmers, growers and food producers are invited to join the scheme as suppliers - a weekly list of available produce is listed on the website and orders placed by Sunday evenings for collection in Oban.  This is an excellent way for small farmers and growers with seasonal surpluses to reach local consumers.

Buckie Fish

A fresh fish van from Buckie visits the villages on a Tuesday morning, calling at the Community Hall in Duror at 11am, then stopping at Kentallen and Ballachuilish Co-op car park.  A wide range of fresh and smoked fish and shellfish are stocked as well as oatcakes, biscuits, cakes and eggs.

Through the Kitchen Garden Gate
A kitchen garden features a combination of vegetables, herbs, fruits and edible or decorative flowers. In short, it contains plants you can use in your kitchen.  They tend to be focussed on production rather than aesthetics, but the two can easily be combined.
