FAQ

GENERAL:

What exactly is Fetching Goodies?
Fetching Goodies is a small, woman-owned & operated 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 Devon Place, Alexandria VA. Goodies are for sale during certain times called pop-ups. Sign up to become a GOODIES VIP (above) to be the first to know when the pop-up dates are announced.

Goodies are typically also sold at the Del Ray Farmers’ Market on Saturdays from 8am-noon; however, in light of the recent events, we have not returned back to the market yet. We look forward to serving you at the market again soon!

Do Goodies change every week?
There are a limited quantity of baked goods available at each pop-up event. There are a few flavors available during each pop-up. I love to make new treats. Is there a particular kind you want to see? Let me know, and you may just see it during the next pop-up! rachel@fetchinggoodies.com.

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

How do I order Goodies?
We do pop-ups! To find out when the next Pop-Up is, subscribe to get Goodies Updates! We have limited supplies and there are limited quantities available. Order sooner rather than later to ensure we don’t sell out!

What is a Pop-Up?
A pop-up is a virtual shop during a set period of time that you can order Goodies! The goal of each pop-up is to provide you with drool-worthy sweets to satisfy your, your family, and your friends’ cravings. Pop-ups occur about twice a month 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 Devon Place, 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: 978-846-3301.
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 pick-up day and time is listed on the homepage along with the pop-up dates.

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.
