Baileys Local Food Buying Club - Weekly Pickup Reminder - Please note our alternate location!

If you put in an order this week it will be ready for you to pick up on Friday, September 4 from 3:30 until 6:00PM (note the shorter hours) at Waterloo's Public Square (at the corner of King Street and Willis Way). We are not able to use the church as there is a funeral on Friday Afternoon.

Those who ordered should have received a confirmation email from Rachael on Thursday.

You can check your order by logging in at

We are not offering a full array of foods this week, but if you ordered Fruit, Roses or Tomatoes from Palatine or No Spray Sweet Corn from Selema and Edward then we'll have your order on Friday.

We have gotten information from Palatine that the Glowing Star peaches had unexpected bird damage. They will be picking on Friday morning to fill all the orders that they can. There is a small chance that some Glowing Star orders will be filled with PF24 peaches. Also, the Abe Lincoln Tomatoes are suffering from this year's weather. If all the orders cannot be filled with Abe Lincoln Tomatoes you have the option of taking home Purple Russian tomatoes instead.

We will have 3 Litre baskets of peaches, pears, plums and tomatoes for sale spontaneously and there may even be a few extra vegetables from Selema and Edward on sale tomorrow at our stand in the Waterloo Public Square. Please drop by. We'd love to see you out!


Thank you again to the City of Waterloo and Tracy, Waterloo's program co-ordinator for the public square and open spaces, for allowing us to have our pickup in the Public Square this week.

The best way to eat your peaches - ripe and perfect!
Peaches need to be picked before ripe to survive going in a box. They then should be spread out on their side or bottom (not stem side down)
on newspaper and they'll ripen over the next few days. You can go through and do the squeeze test and pick out the ripe ones each day. If you leave your peaches in the box one rotten peach can spoil all the ones around it.

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.

When writing cheques, please ensure that the date is correct (it's 2009!) and that the numbers you write (digits and words) match. Also, if you make your cheque out to anything other than Bailey's Local Foods the bank won't cash it. We need you to sign it too! Please help us to avoid these costly errors.

You need to bring your own bags to carry your items home. We have boxes, but 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 Park in the Waterloo Town Square Public Parking Lot. You can access the Waterloo Town Square Parking Lot by Caroline Street, Alexandra Avenue, Willis Way or King Street by the LCBO.  

**Please don't forget to pick up your order! At approximately 6:00PM, if you have not picked up your order, if we have a phone we will call the number you provided (when you registered) with a friendly reminder. At 6:00PM 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 6:30PM (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 6:00PM that same day. After 6:00PM all sales are final.

Thank you,
Rachael and Nina
