In June we'll return to weekly Friday pickups

From Rachael:

Can you believe that this is the last food pickup of the year? It's been an exciting year with new babies, a challenging year with challenging weather for growing food - but we made it! The order form is open and you can start planning how to incorporate local food into your holiday meals.

Kevin Snyder has lovely turkeys for you. They are frozen, so that means fresher, safer meat! Did I mention that his birds are tasty too? He grows the feed that they eat and ensures that it is GMO free.

We hope to make some of your holiday shopping easier with Gift Baskets and gift memberships for your neighbour, co-workers or anyone else you and treats like chocolate for the sweet folks your life - there will definitely be flavoured chocolate bars in our stockings this year! Think about local, edible hostess gifts too - some cheese and/or a jar of jam - all local!

Don't forget that we will have local vendors at the December pickups for you to peruse if you would like to give a non-food gift!

Some other upcoming local shopping opportunities include:
  • Stich n' Kitsch - an awesome sale full of local artists who've created beautiful things. Check out this great sale on December 3rd at First United Church, and support local artists this holiday season!
  • A little bird told me craft sale… Saturday, December 10th from 10 am-4 pm at Little City Farm, 508 Duke St. W, Kitchener. It is a multi-artist sale featuring handmade one-of-a-kind, functional & earth-friendly items. For more details call: 519-575-9174 or Visit our website:


Giving Back
If you are able, please bring some personal care items for local people in need to the church on our pickup days, and, as we did last year, we will make sure they go to the House of Friendship.

Here is a bit of the email from last year when we did the same:
Items such as toothpaste, tooth brushes, floss, deodorant, socks, shampoo and others are highly needed by the House of Friendship Programs. If this is something you would like to contribute to there will be a collection box for any donations during the Dec 5 and Dec 19 pick up dates. If you would like more information about The House of Friendship and the programs they offer please visit their website at

When I was dropping my daughter off at Brownies the other day, I noticed that First United Church is an official drop site for The Waterloo Region Record’s Books for Kids book drive. Please consider donating a new, unwrapped book suitable for a child newborn to 18 years of age. We will move the drop box near the table with the pickup slips for the December 5th pickup. For more information on Books for Kids visit The Waterloo Region Record website. Last, I'd like to remind you that we have a donation option right in our order form. I think our donations will be going to Welcome Home - an organization that provides support for refugees new to Canada and in our area this year, but your suggestions are always welcome.

Look for another email with more details soon!

Enjoy your weekend!
Rachael and Maryrose,
Bailey's Local Foods

P.S. We can use your fruit boxes, baskets and jars from preserves again if you return them.
