Fair Shares Picnic!

Time to RSVP! Please note the change of time.

Sunday, June 7th we will host our annual Fair Shares Member and Producer Potluck Picnic at Larsen Park in Webster Groves from 11:30a.m.-2:30 p.m. BYO plates and utensils and a dish or drink to share. We'll provide the meat.

We invite members and producers to join us at this fun, family-friendly event under the pavilion in the park. Fair Shares provides the grilled meat (and usually a bit of Schlafly Beer), and members and producers provide the appetizers, sides, salads, desserts and drinks. We'll plan to have the meat ready by 12:30ish, so if you're bringing and appetizer, plan to be there on the early side.
 
In the past, we've had an awesome member help with kids' activities, and we're hoping he's available this year, but if you are able to help, please email and let us know!

Go Local
We encourage members to help showcase the variety of foods we can make using local ingredients.

BYO
We ask everyone to help by bringing your own plates, utensils, napkins and cups.

 
We were short desserts one year (horrors!), so now we try to keep track of what people are bringing and keep everyone up to date on what we're lacking. Please plan to bring a dish that is appropriate to the time you plan to arrive (i.e., we don't need appetizers after 1:00).
 
Please RSVP by Saturday May 30th by clicking the link and emailing us the requested info. We'll Be there!

Testimonials

To Betty and me, Fair Shares means security and fairness. It is great to know that every week we will be able to move product and receive a fair price for it. I am proud to be part of the Fair Shares team.
