UCity Members

The pickup will be inside the church in cold weather. Enter the door at the alley on Kingsland. Check with the volunteers on hand for the current protocol as they work out logistics. Masks are mandatory and please bring your sign with name and pickup group. If you are uncomfortable going inside, let the volunteer at the door know and your bags will be brought out to you.

Mom’s Meatloaf

Mom’s Meatloaf
I always wonder why meatloaf gets slated as a humdrum dish, when it's as exciting as a rockstar in my book, and leftovers are always appreciated. Try it with Marina's Cranberry Chutney for a new twist!

Curried Rice (or Pasta) and Veggie Salad

Curried Rice (or Pasta) and Veggie Salad
Sometimes eating cold green salads in the fall and winter is a struggle, but here we are in lettuce season again! Adding a bit of warmth to the plate makes it a lot more appetizing, and comforting.

Fair Shares Holiday Happy Hour

We’re super excited to bring our members a new format to our Happy Hours. (We used to have Happy Hour Shopping Days and invite members in for drinks and snacks while they shop). When member Joanne MicAndrews suggested a virtual beer tasting like one she’d attended online, we thought it would be fun to gather some long term Fair Shares members in the beer biz to help us out. Since nobody will be going to get their shares the week between Christmas and New Year's, we look forward to seeing what you all look like without your masks on!

Join us on Wednesday, December 30th at 6p.m.

for a variety of Fair Shares snacks and a beer tasting event featuring Urban Chestnut’s Ashley Troutman (FSA member for nine years), Rockwell Brewery’s Jonathan Moxey (FSA member for four years) and Schlafly Beer’s Stephen Hale (FS INvolunteer since the idea was hatched in 2007).

$35 event price includes:

1. Snacks (choose one item from each of the four options below)
A. Ludwig or Ropp Cheese OR Voegele Sliced Summer Sausage (Vegan option available by request)
B. Medium Billy Goat Potato Chips OR Gringo’s Tortilla Chips
C. Cham Hummus OR Del Carmen Beans Choice OR Two Men & a Garden Salsa
D. Kakao Chocolate Bark (varieties TBD)

2. Six pack of mixed beers including two from each brewery (exact styles TBD)
We’ll be selecting a couple of our favorite beers from each brewery to offer a full array from yellow to black, malty to hoppy, and light to full bodied.

3. 75-minute Zoom Happy Hour with Ashley, Jonathan and Stephen talking beer and answering all your burning questions!
Meet some amazing members of the brewing community. Learn about what gives beer its individual characteristics and the proper way to pour and taste a beer (hint, if you smell it first, you’re tasting, not drinking!). Since we know these folks have excellent taste in beer as well as food, we can open up the conversation to beer and food pairings, and beyond! If everyone is game to stay on longer than 75 minutes, we may all be game to extend the party!

Sorry for the short notice, but please let us know by email no later than noon Friday, December 18th if you're in. We’ll be giving out the goodie bags on Tuesday and Wednesday at next week's at pickups. Other pickup arrangements by request. The event fee will be deducted from your Farmigo credit.

Holiday Gift Bags for This Week or Next

Check out the store category "Gift Bags" to order ahead from a fun variety Fair Shares gift bags curated to please the foodie friends and family in your bubble, and beyond! From simple snacks to teacher gifts, meal staples to meat-lover kits, you're sure to find presents for all your favorite people (including yourself!). We'll try to have a few ready-to-go bags available at pickups, but you must tell us if you want your bag this week, otherwise your gift bags will be available at next week's pickup. We're doing Order Ahead to be sure we have all items in inventory and as fresh as possible.

We will put together the bags that don't include frozen items with gift bags and a bow. Those with frozen items will be packed in a regular brown bag and include the gift bag and bow separate. Please note that fresh pasta needs to be refrigerated.

Note: We will substitute any items listed if they are not available.

Notes on Trades and Orders

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.

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.
