Welcome to Week 38!

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



ATTENTION MEMBERS: THIS IS YOUR FINAL SHARE PICKUP OF THE YEAR!

Fair Shares Holiday Schedule

We will take off the week of Christmas, so there will be no pickups or deliveries December 26 and 27. We've put your shares on hold so nobody will be charged for the week. If you wish to donate that week to help pay for this year's (seemingly annual) freezer/cooler failure, feel free to login to your account and remove the share hold. Otherwise know that it is supposed to be there. Having said that, we hope you all will come to our Happy Hour Shopping Day on Thursday, December 27th, whether you want to shop or just enjoy a happy hour with us. Details below.

EVEN-week half shares picking up this week, we will see you again in two weeks on January 2nd and 3rd as usual. ODD-week half shares, who picked up last week, we won't see you until January 9th and 10th, so please come shop on the 27th next week!


BYOB = Bring Your Own Bags. We are happy to help you out when you forget or are picking up unexpectedly. If you are sending someone to pick up for you, please let them know to bring bags.

Reminder: 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 will not have been completed before you receive the newsletter. If the store is closed by the time you check, 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 all afternoon.

Online Store Order Deadlines:
- 11 a.m. for Wednesday pickup groups
- 9 a.m. for Thursday Delivered shares
- 12:00 Noon for Thursday pickup groups



If you send in your trades and orders and wish to add on or make changes, you may safely do so up until your ordering deadline without it messing anything up. The final cart content is what shows up on the report we use to pull orders.

A great winter warmer. It was way too stunning a presentation for a weeknight, but we're worth it. The secret to the stunning presentation is in the toppings.Read more
This soup calls for chocolate! Yep, that's right. Dark chocolate adds a great depth of flavor to the earthiness of the beets and the sweetness of the squash.Read more
This stuffed acorn squash is a delicious vegetable side dish and is very versatile and forgiving.Read more

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
