Welcome to Week 41!

We look forward to seeing all full-share, mini-share, ODD-week half-share and Delivered-share members this week.

Eight!
We are officially in the count down to the end of Fair Shares Season 11! After this week, we have seven weeks remaining before our March break.

Trades and Orders

Please check your list at the bottom of the newsletter and note that we may be giving a choice, or more info there than what is listed in your cart. Login to your Fair Shares account in Farmigo to make trades and order extras. The tradable items in your share are listed in your cart. You can delete the items you don't want and add in other items from the store.

Remember, the store is open only until 11a.m. Wednesday for Wednesday pickup groups, and Noon Thursday for Thursday pickup groups. Delivered Share members have until until 9:00 on Thursday morning to place orders. If you're a half share wanting to order from the store on your off weeks, let us know and we'll set up your cart to handle that. Otherwise, you can just come on in and shop in person during regular pickup hours.

We don't have lots of fresh produce, but still an impressive enough list for January. Now is the time to fill your larder with all the staples you'll need for our upcoming break. Feel free to customize your share to include what you and your family like. 

Thursday pickup groups please note that we often don't have time to pull Thursday orders on Wednesday, and we may not have everything available.

Please note that on-premise sales may make the numbers in the store inventory moot. In the event that we are out of any items you ordered, we will either email, send substitutes or omit the item (depending on how much time we have). Any questions, email orders@fairshares.org.



Please join our community on social media, where fellow members share stories, photos, recipes and tips on how to use all the fun food in your shares.

Some people are a little iffy about or uninspired by root veggies, and let them sit in the fridge until they are in a state that leaves no future but the compost heap. One way to sweeten up--and sometimes even disguise a root veggie you or your family is suspect of--is to throw it in the oven and roast it until it caramelizes.Read more
Bring home a frozen local pizza, the frozen pizza dough, or pita bread and doll it up with local ingredients. Dinner's ready!Read more
Don't Despair about Your Share! This time of the year isn't very abundant in the fresh produce department, so now is the time to explore the wonderful world of "value-added foods" we offer from the area. This utterly unappetizing term is the industry name used for all the lovely produce that has been processed and canned or frozen or dried for our winter shares.Read more
Several members have been talking about doing the Whole 30, which inspired my to do another round of my personal Whole30Minutes, and to look up some recipes to see what it's all about. I found a recipe for Thai Curry Veggie Noodles with Chicken that sounded good, but the similarity of spiralized raw vegetables to actual noodles was going to leave me wanting, so instead I created my own version, called it slaw, and served it with gyro meat in a pita. It was the stuff of fantasies.Read more
