Ordering for June 19 ends tonight at 8:00 PM

This is your reminder that you should place your order before tonight at 8:00PM. Click on http://baileyslocalfoods.ca/ordering to order.

Items that you have placed in your shopping cart will be ordered on your behalf on Tuesday at 8:00PM. If you do not intend to order, please ensure that your shopping cart is empty.

***Grand Opening - Please join us on Friday, June 26th for stories of local food from 3:30-4:00PM.***

A few notes regarding this week's items:
Spinach and Green Garlic
We have just added spinach and green garlic to the order form.

Conventional Strawberries
We have not met the minimum order number for these berries right now. Unless orders increase significantly before Tuesday we will not be able to offer them. Sorry!

Traditional Foods Products
I spoke with Aaron and they have some 'old' chicken that  has been in their freezer since last August. We can offer these birds to you for $3.75 per pound. With an average weight of six pounds you can have a tasty roast chicken then make a yummy, inexpensive soup. Throw in some white carrots, green onions, green garlic and anything else leftover from last week's order.

As all the organic beef sold out we have added additional items from Traditional Foods to the order form.

Meat and Cheese prices are approximate on our order form
The exact price of the piece of cheese or package of meat that you choose will be added to your total on Friday. Please ensure that these items are available when you check out so we can add them to your total.

To Members who live in the Waterloo core (between Westmount-Erb-Weber-Union),
A friend of Nina's, Ellen Desjardins, is doing her thesis on: Food and place: how and why people navigate their food.

She'd like to interview buying club members. Here is the purpose of her study:

The purpose of this study is to understand why people choose the places where they normally shop for food or eat away from home. This interest stems from the fact that the places where foods are sold in our region continue to change, yet we are not sure how this matters to people in their everyday lives, and what difference it makes in terms of what they normally eat. The study will focus on adult residents of the area surrounding Uptown Waterloo.

Why do I encourage you to make time for a one hour interview with her? How often do you talk to someone and they listen eagerly while taking notes on every fascinating thing you say? Sounds refreshing, eh? Also, you get a $30 food voucher that can be used at Bailey's Local Foods. That is about 10 lbs of asparagus.  Or two litres of maple syrup. Or six loaves of artisan bread... Here is her explanation of the perks:

In appreciation for your time and participation, you will be given your choice of a $30.00 food voucher or $30.00 cash upon completion of the third dietary questionnaire. As a participant, you will receive a personal dietary analysis from your questionnaires, as well as a report of the results of this research when it is completed.

Sound interesting? If you would like to know more, email Ellen at: desj2665@wlu.ca

See you Friday,
