Baileys Local Food Buying Club - Weekly Pickup Reminder

Hello Local Eaters!

This week's order will be ready for you to pick up on Friday, June 12 from 3:30 until 7:00PM in Hilliard Hall at the First United Church at 16 William Street West in Waterloo.

Please enter through the white kitchen door off Caroline Street.

Due to construction on William Street you will have to cross a stream of water that runs through the parking lot. Please wear appropriate footwear to reach the church and your order!

You will find a pickup slip with your name on it listing the items that you ordered this week. Pick up all your items (including those in the fridges and freezer), check out our spontaneous table then head to our checkout area.

We will have extra items for you to purchase on our Spontaneous Table just in case you forgot anything. Anyone can purchase items from the Spontaneous Table. You don't even have to be a Member.

We will have cookies for sale again this week, so bring some extra change for a treat. There will be room to socialize and mingle. Expect your pick-up to take awhile.  Look for multiple checkout tables this week with one for cash or cheque payments and others for payment by cheque only.

In out checkout area help us and our volunteers by removing all items from your bag for the checkout process. Please be patient as this area will likely be quite busy.

We accept payment in cash or cheque (made out to Bailey's Local Foods). The total from your shopping cart is always approximate. We will try to ensure that you only pay for the items available this week as local food can sometimes be unpredictable and items that are priced by the pound are approximate on the order form.

You need to bring your own bags to carry your items home. We do not have any plastic bags. A limited number of cloth bags will be available for sale.

If possible, consider walking, biking or bringing a wagon to pick up your order. If you are driving, please be aware that William Street is currently closed for construction between King Street and Euclid Street. You can access the Waterloo Town Square Parking Lot by Caroline Street, Alexandra Avenue, Willis Way or King Street by the LCBO. We have been asked not to park in the church parking lot.

**Please don't forget to pick up your order! At 6:30PM, if you have not picked up your order, we will call the number you provided when you registered with a friendly reminder. At 7:00PM we will pack up your order and add the $15 packing fee to your order total. If you have not picked up your order by 7:30PM (or when we finish cleaning up) your order will be donated - and you still get the pleasure of paying for it. We need to receive payment for this week's order before you can order for the following week.

If you are not happy with what you receive, all claims for missing/damaged items must be made at the pick-up site before 7:00PM that same day. After 7:00PM all sales are final.

The fingerling potatoes were not available this week so we have small yellow and red potatoes for you in their place.

Did I mention the strawberries? We will have 48 pints of local organic strawberries on the spontaneous table this week. The cost is $4.75 per pint.

For those of you interested there is a second 100-Mile Challenge Information Event at 7pm on June 15 at the Clay & Glass Gallery. More information at
