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

All orders are due by 10:30 am Wednesday!

LOGIN HERE to select your time and ADD it in your cart. (Mercy South members don't need to select a time.) Make sure that you receive your order confirmation email, or your order didn't go through.
Note that you may update your cart as many times as you like. Your share will be packed for you whether you select a time or not, it just helps us have it ready when you arrive.
COVID PROCEDURES UPDATE: Although CDC guidelines do not require masks indoors, we request that everyone continue to wear masks indoors at pickups. Thanks.

Despite our considerable efforts and continued mask wearing, sadly, Jamie, Lindy, Sara and Stephen all have Covid. Everyone else at Fair Shares tested negative. This week is going to be a challenge with all four of us out. Please send your healing thoughts our way (no need to email, please) and send lots of ease and positive flow to the rest of the staff and volunteers who are covering for us while we're out. We'll be doing our best from our homes to make sure everything goes smoothly. If you have an extra moment to help out when you pick up, please offer. If there are any errors or problems, let us know and we will plan to resolve everything next week. ❤️

How to Prep Asparagus

When you get asparagus in your CSA, it's going to be so much fresher and more tender than the often tough and woody stalks you'll find in the grocery store.

Notes on Trades and Orders

If you have questions or an issue to resolve, please email We get nearly 400 order confirmation emails in the account and WE DO NOT CHECK THEM, so if you want a reply, use, 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 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.

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


The plants listed in the store will be ordered from the farmer for your next pickup, not this week. When your plants have been ordered, we will add the item Pre-ordered Plants into your cart.
