Welcome to Week 43!

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

We are officially in the count down to the end of Fair Shares Season 10! After this week, we have FIVE weeks remaining before our March break.

Produce for Sale

Rather than putting everything that's coming in this week in the shares, we've decided to just have it mostly for sale, so that those who want the produce most can order it. Also, because much of it isn't arriving until Wednesday, we don't know what it will look like. For example, I ordered 50 pounds of acorn squash and 50 pounds of spaghetti squash, but don't know how many of each there will be. The price will be $1.50 per pound, and we will probably sort them by size to determine an average price per piece, but how do we put that in the store for you to request a size when we haven't seen it? 

Lettuce
Swiss Chard
Kale
Spinach

Carrots
Acorn Squash
Spaghetti Squash

Watermelon Radishes
Golden Beets

Sweet potatoes
Kennebec or red potatoes (maybe one type, maybe both?)
Organic White Kidney Beans

Fuji Apples
Apple Cider
Frozen strawberries? $8/qt. bag. (Not sure if we're getting these, so we haven't put them in the store, but email if you want some.)

Trades and Orders

Please 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.
 - Members who pickup at Fair Shares UCity and Kirkwood, the online store is open only until noon on the day of your pickup, but if you don't make it into your account before then, you are still welcome to make trades at your pickup site.
 - Delivered Share members must order online by 9:30 on Thursday morning.
 - Now is the time to fill your larder with all the staples you'll need for our upcoming break--which includes Easter and (the start of) Passover. Feel free to customize your share to include what you and your family like. 

We have a few half, boneless hams from Todd Geisert available in the store. $8/lb. Maybe 5lb. to 7lb. If you want to purchase now, we will put your name on it and store it for you for Easter (we'll be having a shopping day happy hour toward the end of March when you can pick it up.)

We request Thursday pickup groups wait until after Wednesday pickups are over before ordering.
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). If there's something you want that isn't in the store, feel free to email because we just may have it. Any questions, email orders@fairshares.org.

Whether you're hosting or going to someone else's Superbowl party, or if you're celebrating the Soulard Pet Parade, better plan plenty of delicious local snacks for a healthier version of the typical junkfood fare.Read more
I made these once for snack. There were none left at the end of pickups, and a few people were convinced to keep their oat groats, so I guess you could call them a success. There is much room for improvement and adaptation, but with only four ingredients, it's a great jumping off point. Run with it.Read more
I always wonder why meatloaf gets slated as a humdrum dish, when it's so delicious and satisfying, and leftovers are always appreciated.Read more
