Click to log-in and order.

Items that you have placed in your shopping cart will be ordered on your behalf on Thursday Januray 3rd at 8:00pm. There is no checkout button. If you do not intend to order, please ensure that your shopping cart is empty.

Our "Winter" dates are Monday Jan 7th and 28th, Feb 11th, March 4th and 25th, April 15th
Friday dates will resume in May!

From Rachael:
Let me guess. Your fridge is full in anticipation for the holidays and January 7th and 2013 seem like they should still be far off... BUT why not put a few things in your shopping cart now so that you can have your local shopping for January done early? I promise that the season will only get busier and by pickup day on the 7th all the leftovers and cookies should be eaten and you can work on your New Year's resolution to eat more dark chocolate (That's only me? Hm.)

Photos from Open Shutters
If you want to see me, Maryrose and our youngest daughters at the beginning of October in a lovely Community Garden, take a look at some sweet photos of the Harvest Babies at

We thank Catherine of Open Shutters Photography for taking these lovely photos. As some of you might know, in August of 2011 Rachael and Maryrose both had baby girls. Laura was born 20 days before Marlo and these little ladies have brought us much joy in the last year (and a bit of sleep deprivation too). As an amazing gift to us, one of our members, Catherine offered to take photos of our girls and we are happy to share them with you! You can even check out some of her other photos. I found quite a few familiar faces among her subjects!

Pie in a Jar
Cider Keg made these awesome spreads this year and it's so yummy we want you to try some! We'll be sharing some with you at the January 7th pickup and we'll put it on special too... It's regularly $6 per jar, but if you buy two jars we'll give you a dollar off! 2 jars for $11! Where would you use Pie In A Jar? On ice cream, on toast, on a spoon... The best part are the ingredients... As an example the Cherry Pie In A Jar contains: Ontario Sour Cherries, sugar, Ontario apple cider, and pectin. That's it! (ingredients are listed on the order form) You'll find these in the 'preserved' section.

Some healthy food to buy in January to help keep resolutions:
  • Award winning Gordon's Goat Cheese (again!)
  • Flour and grains from Oak Manor
  • Dried Beans from Rounds
  • Yogurt
  • Tea - We are lucky to have blends from Little City Farm and Revive
  • XL Tortilla wraps (12 inches in diameter!)
Solstice is coming!
I get so excited about Winter Solstice. It means that the days are about to get longer! Many people wait until Solstice to start eating their preserves from the summer. I'm not so rstrained, but I think I'll enjoy some peaches in light honey syrup that were canned this summer on Friday to celebrate - and if the world ends, I'll be happy!

Breslau Location discontinued
To our valued members of Bailey's Local Foods at Breslau Local Food Market,

We have reached the end of the one year pilot project at the Breslau Community Centre. It was our intention to help the Breslau Local Food Market committee grow this endeavour to a vibrant community market. The market has not grown and we have seen a steady decline in sales and attendance. As of the new year the cost of running this location will increase. We are a small business that is not able to support a pick up location that is not breaking even. We have made the difficult decision to end our presence at the market at this time.

We welcome people from Breslau to
continue to be a member and pick up you local food at our Waterloo location. If people want to work together to pick up multiple orders and bring them back to Breslau to distribute among friends we can work with you on this.

Our last pick up day in Breslau was December 17th. We apologize for any inconvenience and hope to continue to see you in Waterloo enjoying a great selection of local food.

As a result of our departure, the existing market committee has decided to discontinue the Breslau Local Food Market at this time. If you would like to see a market continue in Breslau we urge you to join the market committee!

We thank Carolyn, Grace and Janet for all they have done for this market and your community and wish our fellow vendors the best in all future endeavours! Thanks also go to Allie, who managed Bailey's in Breslau and made connections with so many of you!

The Waterloo pickup location will continue, no worries about that!

Be well,

Maryrose and Rachael
Bailey's Local Foods

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