A message from Rachael:

Ordering ends on TUESDAY

Oops! In the last email I didn't do a very good job at editing and while I changed the order deadline date to the 22nd, I gave the incorrect day of the week! Ordering is open until TUESDAY January 22nd but you an get your order in sooner too! OUr farmers and suppliers need the extra time to prepare your orders and have time on the weekend for their own families!

Yum! Introducing Bread Heads

We have a new supplier this pickup. Bread Heads is offering bread, rolls, scones, squares and muffins. Yesterday there were two articles written about them. One in The Record ( and one from Waterloo Region Eats ( In the future we may be able to bring you pizza that you can finish cooking at home, but not quite yet. You still have to go to Duke Street for that!
