Welcome to Fair Shares Season 14 Wk32

Half-Share Members: it's an EVEN-week pickup--check your subscriptions in your Farmigo account if you are unsure whether you are an ODD- or EVEN-week half share. Please note that you will receive this newsletter weekly (you may request access to order through the store on your off weeks).


VACATION SHARE HOLD INFO: Please note that we order the produce on Monday, so we MUST have share holds in place before 8:00a.m. so that we can figure our numbers properly. You will be charged for the produce, which we can't sell, if you tell us or put your share on hold late.
Although you may put your share on hold (login and click the Delivery Hold tab), it would be EXTREMELY helpful to us and our farmers, who have upped production this season, if you found someone who might like to buy your share for the weeks you're gone, to try it out. Maybe you want to pay your petsitter or house sitter with some food, or maybe you have to give a present to someone, and we can make it easy on you!

If you need to switch your pickup day, email us before 10a.m. Wednesday. Selecting the different day in the store is not the way to do it!

LOGIN HERE to make your trades and order. You may update your cart as many times as you like.
Your share will be packed for you whether you make trades and select a time or not, it just helps us have it ready when you arrive.

I took home a bunch of eggplant, peppers, zucchini and tomatoes that needed to be processed, and decided to make a ratatouille. I didn't really follow a recipe (surprise, surprise)... Read more

Help Us Grow!

Refer-a-Friend for CSA Week
We need your help! Our member numbers have been dwindling, and we need an influx of new members to help us in the lean winter months.

Nothing gets the word out like member referrals. We have brochures available to hand out and leave in your places of work, schools, etc. We'll have some available at each pickup location. Thanks!

Notes on Trades and Orders

Heads up! We've gotten new price lists from a number of our vendors, so please take note in the store, where you'll find the updated prices as they change.

If you have questions or an issue to resolve, please email info@fairshares.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.

Union Loafers Bread

This week, we'll be getting:
Sesame Hoagie
Plain Hoagie

Since we'll be getting the bread in fresh on both Wednesday and Thursday, please make sure to select the proper item for your pickup day. If all the bread doesn't get purchased through the store, we'll offer it outside at the Mothership during pickup.

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.
