Welcome to Fair Shares Season 17 Wk13

We'll see all Full Share, Mini Share, and ODD-week Half Share members this week.
(Note the ODD and EVEN half shares correspond to the odd- or even-numbered weeks of our season.)

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, and then look for a thumbs up or confirmation reply from us.

LOGIN HERE to select your time and ADD it in your cart. Make sure that the time you want is in your order confirmation email. If you don't receive an automated confirmation email, your order didn't go through. You may update your cart as many times as you like until we run our report at 10:30 Wednesday. Your share will be packed for you regardless of whether you make changes or select a time. The time just helps us organize and have your bags ready when you arrive.

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.

Fair Shares will be CLOSED for 4th of July Next Week

Since the holiday falls on a Thursday, we will take the week off. Stock up for the week off!
Next week would be Week 14, so EVEN-week half shares, please note that your next pickup will be July 17 or 18. You may place an order for pickup this week if you like. Let us know if your account needs to be set up for it (if it's not, it will say the store is closed when you try to login to order).

We wish you all a safe and happy holiday!

We could use some silver insulated bubble bags that we put ice packs in and businesses send your chocolates in so they don't melt. We appreciate you bringing some in and will let you know when they are no longer needed
We don't want to order produce that we will have to donate. With no-shows and extras already ordered for the store, there can be a glut of leftover produce.
In the wintertime, this isn't as big a problem, but in high-produce season we have to charge you for the produce if you put your share on hold late. Thanks for your understanding and cooperation.

Week 13

We will have the first tomatoes of the year this week! This is the last week before our July 4th week-long break so don’t forget to stock up on those essentials (eggs, produce, milk, etc.). Kale is slowing down and this is the last broccoli most likely till fall.

NEW: Heirloom Tomatoes
Returning: Kohlrabi

Simple Sauté of Celtuce

Simple Sauté of Celtuce
Celtuce is a Chinese lettuce. The leaves are edible raw, but the stalk needs to be peeled to be eaten. The stalk has a subtle nutty taste, so I gave it a quick sauté with just a few ingredients.

Garlic Scape Falafel

Garlic Scape Falafel
I get so excited when garlic scapes are in season. I basically use them in any recipe calling for garlic, but this is a favorite.

Share Your Shares!

Consider giving your share as a gift rather than putting it on hold during the summer. Our produce farmers especially appreciate it, and introducing your friends to Fair Shares is a great way to keep us sustainable.
People love to try new experiences. It's a great way to thank (or pay) your pet or house sitters while you're away!
Join our Facebook group to get help from seasoned members, ask questions about unknown produce you may have received, and share your food inspirations! https://www.facebook.com/groups/49485152740

Notes on Trades and Orders

If you have questions or an issue to resolve, please email info@fairshares.org. Do not reply to the order confirmation emails that send to orders@fairshares.org account--WE DO NOT CHECK THAT MAILBOX BEFORE PICKUPS, 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. Any amount over the tradeable value will show as Extra Credit and you will be charged additional plus tax on that amount.

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.
