Cranberry Salad

This sweet, tart, crunchy and nutty cranberry Jello salad may well become a standard on your Thanksgiving table. It's so easy and so good as leftovers. Read more

Mushroom Stuffing

Mushroom Stuffing
Adapted from Ozark Forest Mushroom's newsletter--if it's any bit as good as Nicola's other recipes, this should prove to be a winner. A great spin on a classic holiday dish! Read more

Jamie's Thanksgiving Dressing

This is our mother's recipe, which Jamie adapted to perfection with happy, local food. I didn't like it as a child. What a fool. This makes awesome cold leftovers, so be sure to make extra!

We want to encourage everyone to try out some recipes in preparation for the holiday stuffing coming up for Thanksgiving. We're getting into the season for comfort foods, and a nice casserole of savory bread pudding is just the trick to get you in the mood. Read more

Turkey Talk

What's your favorite Thanksgiving turkey preparation? Roasted, smoked or deep fried? Perhaps boiled or poached? (that was a joke).

Regardless of the cooking technique, a great first step in making a memorable, moist and delicious bird is to brine it.

Beth Sorrell's Week 35 recipe

I was lucky to get figs last week and wanted to do something fun and different with them, so I folded them into warm oats with a spoonful of Mound City peanut butter. YUM!

Mushroom Brown Rice Soup

Mushroom Brown Rice Soup
Beth Sorrell's Week 34 recipe

If you would like a half gallon of heavy cream or extra milk for pickup next Monday or Tuesday, please email jamie@fairshares.org before this Friday!

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 don't check the orders@fairshares.org inbox, 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're trying something new; we'll be getting all one type of bread on both days in the hopes that more people will get the opportunity to try it. We may do the same bread for two weeks in a row so the half-share members get the opportunity as well. Thoughts?

This week's bread is Light and Mild: Our flagship sourdough or "pain au levain," this loaf has an open, custardy crumb and a brittle and crackery crust. Light and mild features a mild sourness and creamy, sweet wheat flavors. Unsliced.

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.
