Welcome to Week 44!

We look forward to seeing all full-share, mini-share, EVEN-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 FOUR weeks remaining before our March break.

We Need New Members
...and we want your help!

Can you help us spread the word and share our member testimonial videos on social network or emailing to friends? Here's a page from our website that has all our awesome members talking about why they love Fair Shares. Help us keep this service to the community afloat!

New Kounter Kulture Item!
Berbere Lentil Dip: $6 - Berbere is an Ethiopian spice blend that has chili powder and paprika along with a host of other sweet/savory notes. This lentil dip is creamy and flavorful and would make a lovely spread on a roll-up in place of hummus. We had to try it, in the name of science, of course, and we are sold. Another win from our friends at Kitchen Kulture! 

Produce for Sale
Leeks! We got some leeks from Nolte this week, and are offering them for sale $3/.75lb. 

Golden Beets

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.
If you need to place your order on Tuesday or Wednesday, please note that we will not get to it until Thursday, and Wednesday 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.

We're Turning 10 Years Old!

If you don't live in Soulard, you may not even be aware that it's Mardi Gras season. Having lived in the neighborhood for 26+ years, I can only say Lucky you. But we will celebrate in great taste with a big pot of semi-traditional Beans and Rice. Laissez le bon temps rouler!Read more
This would be a great way to showcase the frozen strawberries we got in from Double Star, as well as all the fantastic, organic flour and cornmeal from MckKaskle and Brian Severson Farms. Local IS better.Read more
