Check your subscriptions in your Farmigo account if you are unsure whether you are an ODD- or EVEN-week half share.

Your assigned pickup day is [Delivery Day], but if you need to switch the day, reply to this email before 10a.m. Wednesday. Selecting the different day in the store is not the way to do it!

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

This email is how we communicate with members. Please at least scan it so you know any important information. For instance: NEW THIS SEASON - All members must complete trades and orders by 10:30a.m. Wednesday.

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

New Vendor! Sedara Sweets and Ice Cream

In case anyone didn't get their fill of sweets and delicious foods over the past holiday, we are excited to have some new options for you this week! First, we'll be offering 5-pack variety baklava boxes from Sedara Sweets and Ice Cream, 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 for the Farmers' Market season. Look in the Prepared Foods category for quick and tasty salads and more.

Lion's Mane Mushrooms

We've heard from a number of members that they don't know how to use these mushrooms, so here is a suggestion that I've tried and enjoyed, and also a link to aubreyskitchen.com, where you'll find a recipe for Vegan (or Vegetarian) Crab Cakes that looks and sounds like a special treat, in case you don't have a plan for the upcoming holiday...

Homemade Granola

Homemade Granola
Member Beth Sorrell's Weekly Recipe

Homemade granola is not only easy, it’s so much better than store bought. The best part is that you can customize it to your taste. I used several Fair Shares ingredients to make this.

Clover Flex for Sale - $150

We purchased a Clover Flex handheld mobile card-swipe machine for a potential project that never panned out. We used it once and it's been sitting in a drawer ever since. We only realized it's been costing us nearly $500 a year to keep it, so let us know if you need one!

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.

Note that the available greens have gone to the store.


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