A Message from Rachael and Maryrose:

Welcome back from March Break! Was it ever beautiful in KW! Spring is officially here! Does that mean we'll have to put the shorts away again?

I was starting to think that ordering closed this Tuesday, but then I checked my calendar and we have one more week! Whew!

Did you know that our ordering calendar is on our website at baileyslocalfoods.ca? If you use an online calendar there are ways to import the ordering and pickup schedule into your google calendar and possibly to other electronic calendars too. While you are on the home page check out the recipe for Butternut Squash Soup that Nathan from Nith Valley Organics shared! He is offering frozen butternut squash that works well with this recipe!

Tell us your favourites!
Speaking of sharing, we'd love to hear about your favourite foods bought though Bailey's! Natalie finally tried Jerusalem Artichokes - pressure cooked and served with butter - She emailed me to say: "I got Jerusalem artichokes this time. They're amazing! Like the most delicate potato with definitely artichoke flavour. I'm delighted. Thank you!" Yum!

We'd love to hear your reviews of favourites and share them here! Please do send us your comments!

Change of Pace
We are two months away from our weekly pick ups on Fridays. We are savouring all of or down time while gearing up for the new growing season. The winter that never was has gone by so fast this year! What do you have poking up in your yard? Our offering list is only going to get longer as we move into spring. Here are some of the new items for this pick up.

Look for:
  • Salad Greens, Spinach and Kale from Kingwood Farms
  • Herbs and greens as well as frozen squash from Nith Valley Organics
  • Premium Bacon and onions from Traditional Foods
  • Frozen Edamame from Pristine Gourmet
  • Grape & Beefsteak Tomatoes from Floralane
  • Canned whole tomatoes from Ontario Natural
  • Omega 3 Kettle Corn from Farm to Table
  • Seed Starting kits from Sarah's Kitchen Gardens in the 'plants' section
  • Pfenning's Sauerkraut is back!
  • Two new flavoured chocolate bars from Anna Tolazzi: Citroen and The Way of Tea
  • All the Maple Syrup from Snyder Heritage Farms is available again! Hopefully there will be enough to last all year!
We have some garden products from Traditional Gardener to offer for a limited time. Here's the story:
Aura and Tim moved back to Kitchener to buy a house and raise their son. 6 years, 2 kids and a bakery later they have found their calling. The two met in Cooking School and shared a passion for food. This passion grew to include them growing their own food in their Kitchener backyard. They knew that they both wanted to stay in the food industry and close to growing it. This manifested itself into a line of products that would not only facilitate the growing of food but in a very functional and stylish form. All of the products have been designed and handmade by Tim. We are so happy to have the opportunity to launch the first line of products with Baileys Local Foods in April.
Traditional Gardener Growing with Style

How does Bailey's work? (a friendly reminder of how online ordering and pickup operates.)
We are always excited to have new members at Bailey's but we would like to remind everyone that when you come to pick up your order please make sure that you are not only picking your items from the correct farmer/supplier but also collecting the correct size and quantity. Taking a little extra time means not only are you getting what you ordered online but also that the people who can't make it till a little later in the pick up are also getting what they ordered. It is always hard for us at Bailey's when we need to tell people that their items are no longer at the pick up. We don't buy extra because in order to be sustainable and support the local producers and farmers we order what is needed. Bailey's is a unique way of shopping. In order for us to continue the service we ask that you double check or ask one of us if you are not sure of an item. As we approach the full season offering we thank you again for making us the business Bailey's Local Foods is today and in the future.
