Welcome to Fair Shares Wk 47!

Your assigned pickup day is [Delivery Day], [Next Delivery Date]*, and your group is [Pickup Site].
To switch the day or location, reply to this email before 10a.m. Wednesday so we can switch you in the system, otherwise you won't show up on the correct report.
*Half share members, please note that if you shop on your off-weeks, it will show that you have a pickup each week, so you need to note whether it's an even or odd week to know if you're getting a share.

Your share will be packed for you whether you select a time or not, it just helps us have it ready when you arrive.

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. 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.

Note that most of the available greens have gone to the store. We are filling the shares with jars and staple products so you can trade out and get what you like.
