Fair Shares Break - October 4 & 5

Please mark your calendars!
We normally take a September Sanity Break the final full week of the month, but this year we are taking off the first week of October, so there will be no pickup in two weeks, on October 4th and 5th, Wk 28.
EVEN-week Half-share members who pick up this week on Wk 26, please note that you will have a month before your next pickup on October 18 and 19, so stock up!
ODD-week half shares picking up next week won't feel a thing.
Weekly-pickup members have two more pickups before the break (including this week).

Wk 26 Produce Highlights

Loose carrots, sweet potatoes, mixed and fingerling potatoes. Let's not forget about poblano peppers--always a highlight!

Welcome to Fair Shares Season 16 Wk26

We'll see all Full Share, Mini Share, and EVEN-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.

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.

The Skinny on Paw Paws

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!
Check out our Facebook group for a post from Rob on how to identify a perfectly ripe paw paw.

Celery Root Mashed Potatoes
Use celery root in similar preparations as potatoes--in soups, root veggie roasts, pan-fried, or boiled and mashed, as in this recipe. If the stalks are attached, freeze them in a zip-lock (along with the cleaned peels) to add to stocks... Read more
