Welcome to Week 47!

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

This is the second to last week before our March break. Half-share members, this is your final pickup of Season 11 - don't forget to stock up!

We will host a Happy Hour Shopping Day on March 13th--which will allow everyone to stock up for St. Patrick's Day parties. We won't be serving green beer, though, so you'll have to satisfy that desire elsewhere.


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.

As we approach the end of the season, we try to reduce our inventory, so you will see more choices or Shopping Spree! (aka Wildcard) options in the shares. We'll put a variety out for you to choose from, but we're really just trying to keep the over/under values on the shares as close to $0 as possible. Feel free to customize your share to include what you and your family like. You're not hurting our feelings when you trade everything out of your share. Now is the time to fill your larder with all the staples you'll need for our upcoming break.

Ordering Deadlines:
11a.m. Wednesday for Wednesday pickup groups
Noon Thursday for Thursday pickup groups

9 a.m. Thursday for Delivered Share members

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.

Thursday pickup groups: we often don't have time to pull Thursday orders on Wednesday, and we may not have everything available if you ordered before the store update Wednesday evening.

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.

This recipe is based on the classic Italian dish, adjusted to Fair Shares ingredients, and is perfect served over a thin bed of chopped spinach, shoots, or arugula so it wilts the greens. Or toss the greens in just before serving.Read more
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

SO easy and a different way to enjoy the spinach. We substituted Marcoot Cave-aged Tomme for the parmesan, but you could use scamorza or any aged grating cheese. It was delicious with fresh pasta.Read more
In the mood for noodles with Thai peanut sauce, or maybe a gooey, cheesy lasagna? Is Mexican striking your fancy tonight? Asian fusion? Go on, prepare it with spaghetti squash.Read more
Try this with the drumsticks from your share! Sofrito is a method of cooking--a low, slow frying with herbs and spices that create delectible, caramelized deliciousness. I adapted this recipe from my Jeruselem cookbook by Yotam Ottolenghi. My adaptations were based on what I had on hand. I would never presume to make something that tastes better than any of the tested recipes in this book; I'm just too lazy to look up a recipe before deciding to make whatever I have in the house.Read more
