Welcome to Week 22!

We'll see all Full Shares, EVEN-week Half Shares, Mini Shares and Delivered Shares this week.


Announcing the End-of-September Sanity Break

Notice Number 2. Mark Your Calendars: There will be NO PICKUPS on Week 26, September 26 and 27th! How will you remember? No pickups Wk 26 on the 26th.
Although our farmers would love it if we were here to sell their food that week, we really gotta get the heck outta dodge. Really, we'll be much nicer when we come back. We need this break to recharge and save our sanity, though we fear it may be too late.
 

Notice for next Wednesday, September 5th.
Involunteer Extraordinaire Stephen, who drives the shares to UCity each Wednesday, will be flying back in town next Wednesday afternoon, and if there are any delays, he may be late to do the delivery. Our backup delivery people are unavailable, so in a worst case scenario, we'll lose one of the three of us at Fair Shares while we get the food to UCity. This is all to say, expect delays, feel free to help, and please be patient. Thanks! Also, we're seeking volunteers on Wednesdays... 
 

ORDER ONLINE!

Please wait until your weekly share items have been added to your cart before selecting any items from the store. You don't have to wait until the newsletter is sent, but keep in mind that the store updating may not have been completed yet. If the store is closed by the time you check (after non on your pickup day), you may logout to browse the store and send us an email, but we may not see it before you pick up because we often aren't at our computers after noon.

 Smaller Fig Shares 
We are continuing with the half-size fig shares that will cost $3.75 rather than $7 (we are requiring him to use more packaging, so we gave him the extra quarter). For those of you who are big fig fans, we are requesting a few full size shares for the original $7 if you would like to order those. If you want us to save you a box each week, just let us know. Also, If your box is clean and in good shape, we'll take it back, but if it's gross or crushed, please just recycle it.

Reminder on Meat Orders from the Store

We request that you order the number of packages you would like. We will make the price in the store a typical package price and will update with the actual price. You are welcome to email us with details on whether you are seeking a specific weight or number of pieces.

For example, boneless chicken breasts are usually two to a package and average one pound. If you want two packages (four breasts), you will order two packages. If you are looking for a minimum of three pounds and you don't care how many breasts or packages it takes, you can enter "1" and email us with any instructions. We will do our best to get the store updated with accurate info, but keep in mind that some items vary wildly in size and weight each time they come in. When we get different sizes week to week, and when deliveries don't come in until Wednesday, it makes keeping this info updated inthe store impossible, so just email us to tell us what you want.

Keeping the inventory in the store accurate is extra difficult with our system and schedule, so if we are out of something you request, we may contact you if time allows, or send an alternative option. You can always trade it and select something different from the swap items available at your pickup site (sorry, this option is not available to Delivery to Groups members). If you're looking for something you don't see, just email/ask because we might have it even if it isn't in the store.

Delivered share members must order by 9:00am on your delivery day.
Pickup members must order by noon on your pickup day.

Login to your Farmigo account to swap out the tradable items in your cart.

This dish is savory and satisfying, with the spice combination of cinnamon and cloves that make it an exotic and exciting meal.Read more
A spin on traditional tabouleh, using wheat berries in place of cracked wheat. This recipe uses all local ingredients, save for the lemon juice, salt and pepper. Good and good for you!Read more
The sweetness of the peach adds a nice counter to the spicy jalapeno, and the peach and tomato together...well, they've kind of got a thing going on.Read more
Someone told us that okra is only slimy once it's cut, so the secret should be to cook it whole. Eating it whole may present more of a challenge, but if you really have a problem with the texture of okra, you now know the solution.Read more
This recipe was created with larger bell peppers in mind, but will work well for other peppers, either hot or sweet, such as corno de toro, ancho and poblano peppers. Go ahead and make extra, so your dreams of more in the future will come true.Read more
Besides being a source of vitamins A, C, and K, hot peppers supposedly help burn fat deposits in the body. That alone gets me interested, but did you know that hot peppers are also believed to arrest the growth and division of cancer cells, act as an anti-inflammatory to help in the treatment of migraines, arthritis, and muscular pains, help fight colds, sinusitis, and bronchitis, improve blood circulation, have an anti-coagulant effect, be beneficial for stomach ailments, suppress appetite, combat depression, and in a dried state, kill bacteria and hasten the healing process? Sounds like the next wonder drug, right? Here are some suggestions on how to handle, eat and preserve those hot peppers.Read more
With eggplant and basil in high season, and peppers finally starting to come in strong, this recipe from the MACSAC cookbook From Asparagus to Zucchini is perfect for an easy summer supper.Read more
Summer's not really almost gone--I'm sure the relentless heat will seem to go on indefinitely, but one of my favorite things about summer is nearing the end of it's high season: Peaches. WHAAAAT? NOOOOOOoooooo! I know, bummer. They've been so amazingly good this year. When Roy Jacobs of Jacob's Orchard told me this might be the final week to get peaches, I ordered enough to take us through next week. When he delivered, he said we should be able to get more for next week, so I'll plan to get enough next week to get us through the following week. If you want to order a box to process and freeze ...Read more
