Kale Salad w/Wheat Berries

in Yogurt Caesar Dressing

Kale Salad w/Wheat Berries
Beth Sorrell's Weekly Recipe

I cooked the wheat berries 2 different ways for this salad. Each time I used 1 cup of wheat berries from Fair Shares and 3 cups water. One batch I cooked in my Instant Pot on manual mode for 35 minutes. Quick release and drain.

We're slowly getting more greens in, but not much is in the shares yet, so hurry to the store to order up what we have!

New Item: Baklava from Sedara Sweets and Ice Cream

We sold out of the baklava last week and the folks at Sedara would love to get your feedback. We ordered more, in case you didn't get to try it yet--or if you need to try it one more time before you can sure...
We're offering 5-pack variety baklava boxes, specially priced at $10 (that's $2 to $3 off retail). Look in the Bakery category for Baklava.

We're also getting in some yummy goodies from Field to Fire as Chef Mike prepares more variety for the Farmers' Markets. Look in the Prepared Foods category for quick and tasty salads and more.

Yogurt Coffee Cake

Yogurt Coffee Cake
Member Beth Sorrell's Weekly Recipe

Once I heard that a simple yogurt cake is the first recipe French kids learn how to bake, I had to try it. Of course I wanted to make it a bit interesting so I converted the recipe into a coffee cake. Read more

Notes on Trades and Orders

If you have questions or an issue to resolve, please email info@fairsahares.org. We get over 400 order confirmation emails in the orders@fairshares.org account and WE DO NOT CHECK THEM, 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.

Here's a video demo on how to make trades. Note that Farmigo has updated their system to allow you to click certain 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.


All members must complete trades and orders by 10:30a.m. Wednesday.
