Welcome to Fair Shares Season 16 Wk21

We'll see all Full Share, Mini Share, and ODD-week Half Share members this week.

Your assigned pickup day is [Delivery Day], but if you ever need to switch the day or location, reply to this email before 10a.m. Wednesday.

LOGIN HERE to select your time and ADD it in your cart. Your share will be packed for you regardless, selecting a time just helps us organize and have your bags ready when you arrive.

You may update your cart as many times as you like. We run a report at 10:30 am Wednesdays which includes the latest update,

Pro Tip: You can browse the store when it's "closed" by logging out of your account, but keep in mind that we update the store inventory on Tuesdays just before sending out the newsletter.

This email is how we communicate with members. Please at least scan it so you know any important information. If you have questions, just reply to this email.

Please note that you can put your share on hold through your account under the "Delivery Hold" tab, but you must do so before Monday morning when we are putting together the numbers and ordering the produce.

We get stuck with so many bags of produce that we're unable to sell and we will need to charge you for the produce if you request that your share be put on hold after we've ordered. This is not a new policy, just a reminder since summer is here and produce is plenty.

Also, if you know anyone who might like to try out your share while you're away, it would be helpful to our farmers and us!

Our four flavors provide you with a boost of protein ranging up to 10 grams of protein per serving. The opportunities with our sauces are endless! It makes it easy for you to get creative with incorporating protein into your meals. Follow us on Instagram @prosaucery for more information!

If you find them in your share, you can select your preference by visiting the Eggs/Yogurt/Milk category and reading the descriptions on the available varieties. Add the one you want to your cart and delete the Pro-Saucery Wildcard item. If you've tried them and would like to share your experience, please post to our Facebook Group!

NEW! Katie's Pizza and Pastas

We've ordered up a mouth-watering array of new prepared foods from Katie's Pizza, including a variety pizzas, fresh pasta, toasted ravioli and sauces.

All of Katie's Pizza and Pasta products are made in house from scratch with the best ingredients and the same team of KPPO chefs. Every pizza is hand stretched, wood fired and topped with beautiful specialty Italian meats, cheeses and local vegetables. Every pasta is house extruded with fresh semolina and local farm eggs.

Check the Prepared Foods category in the store for the Pizzas, and the Pastas category for the Pasta, then you can head over to Katie's website if you need more info.

Notes on Trades and Orders

If you have questions or an issue to resolve, please email info@fairshares.org. We get nearly 400 order confirmation emails in the orders@fairshares.org account and WE DO NOT ALWAYS CHECK THEM, so if you want a reply, use info@fairshares.org, which goes to both Jamie and Sara, and one of us will see it.

The share clipboards below will include the fresh produce on your list, but the cart in your Farmigo account lists only the tradable items in your share. You must spend the total credit value in your cart but you are welcome to buy extra.

Here's a video demo on how to make trades. Note that Farmigo has updated their system to allow you to click the items in your cart that have variations for you to select. Here's the link to LOGIN.

Please check the descriptions of items! Some things are sold by the pound (indicated by /lb. in the item name) so the actual price will be different from what's listed in the store. If what's in your bag is not what you were expecting, give it back. If you're at the Mothership, you may be able to choose something else. This is particularly important on items like bulk chicken breasts, where the item price shows the price per pound, but the package weight may be five pounds.

Pro Tip: You can browse the store when it's "closed" by logging out of your account.
