GENERAL:

What is Fetching Goodies?
Fetching Goodies is a small, woman-owned & operated residential bakery in Alexandria, Virginia. Fetching Goodies’ mission is to satisfy your sweet tooth with the best baked goods you’ve ever had. My name is Rachel and I’m the owner and baker. I create classic yet innovative baked goods – bars, cookies, quick-breads, muffins, brownies + more! I put a lot of love (and time & attention) into every batch.

Where can I buy Goodies?
You’ve come to the right place – reserve your Goodies on this website, and pick them up at the home bakery located on East Windsor Avenue, Alexandria, VA. You’ll select your pickup day and time at checkout.

Do Goodies change every week?
The Goodies menu is constantly evolving. Goodies being added. Seasonal Goodies going into hibernation. Check out the menu for the latest offerings! Is there a particular kind you want to see? Let’s make it happen. Email me at rachel@fetchinggoodies.com.

Do you deliver?
Currently, orders are exclusively for pick-up.

How do I order Goodies?
Visit the Menu & Orders page. Select the goodies you want. All goodies are sold by the dozen. When you’ve added what you want to your cart, checkout. You’ll be prompted to select your pickup day and time at checkout. After you complete your order, you’ll receive a confirmation email with pickup instructions.

We also do occasional virtual pop-ups. To find out when the next Pop-Up is, subscribe to get Goodies Updates!

What is a Pop-Up?
A pop-up is a virtual shop during a set period of time that you can order certain types of Goodies! Pop-ups occur sporadically and offer Goodies for sale to order on Thursdays and Fridays, to pick-up on Sunday. The dates are announced in advance. Want to know the dates of the next pop-up? Become a GOODIES VIP (free!) to be the first to know as soon as they’re announced!

How does contactless pick-up work?
We are taking social distancing seriously, including in our pick-up procedure. Therefore, we are enacting the 6-foot-apart rule. Please follow these steps to pick-up your order.

1) Arrive at our home bakery at East Windsor Avenue, Alexandria, VA, 22314. To facilitate the 6-foot-rule, please stay on sidewalk (as opposed to coming up to the front door).
2) Call or text me with your name and to say you’ve arrived. (Phone number in confirmation email.)
3) I will bring your order outside to the pick-up table. Then I will go back inside.
4) You can go ahead and scoop up your order from the table.
5) Enjoy your Goodies!!

When can I pick-up my Goodies?
The available pickup days will be options to select at checkout. You’ll be able to select from the available days.

Can I freeze them?
Yes! Cookie bars freeze very well. To freeze, place bars in a freezer-proof container (i.e. freezer ziploc bag or tupperware) and pop it into the freezer. Whenever you want one, you can (a) simply take it out of the freezer and allow to rest on the counter for about 2 hours, (b) enjoy frozen! or (c) put it on a plate and into the microwave for 30 seconds for a warm bar. YUM!

I want something that I don’t see on this site. Can you make it for me?
Absolutely! Just email me: rachel@FetchingGoodies.com.
