Welcome to Fair Shares Week 48!

We'll see all Full-share, Mini-share, Delivered-share and EVEN-week Half-share members on Wednesday and Thursday.

THIS IS THE FINAL PICKUP in Season 12!
We will start back with Season 13, Week 1 on the last full week of March, Wednesday the 25th and Thursday the 26th.
Even week members, this is your final pickup until Season 13, Week 2 on April 1 and 2 (no fooling). 

Happy-hour Shopping Day

Mark Your Calendars: We're planning a happy-hour shopping day on Friday, March 13th from 3 to 6, and will beg everyone to come shop during our break to help us out.
We can order milk for everyone interested in getting some on Friday the 13th, so please click here to email orders@fairshares.org and let us know by Friday the 6th.

 


 

Special Notice on Trades and Orders - For the last week of the season, we are going to be offering lots of choices on all the tradable items in an attempt to run through some inventory, so please feel free to trade out everything and request what you want, particularly with any item in your cart that offers a choice. 

ALL MEMBERS please place online trades and orders by Wednesday at 11a.m.
 

Remember not to order until your tradable share items have been added. Note that the share clipboards in the newsletter will include the fresh produce on your list, but the cart in your Farmigo account lists only the tradable items in your share. You must spend the total credit value in your cart because it will not be added back to your account. If you are trading for meat or fish that is priced per pound (check the description), you may want to email (reply to this email) to let us know your intention, e.g. whether you are trying to trade close to even, or whether you are looking for three packages of boneless thighs versus three pounds of boneless thighs. With the variability of package sizes and the limitations of the online store listing, sometimes it's helpful to avoid big surprises when we have to guess.

If you order before receiving the newsletter, you may see a discrepancy in pricing or availability because we don't send the newsletter until we've updated the store.

Login to your account to swap items from your cart and add extras. Remember you can customize your cheese, yogurt, gyro, Del Carmen, Wildcard$ and other choices by switching these items to your preferred choices in your cart. 

KIRKWOOD MEMBERS:  Special thanks to the angel in Kirkwood who has tidied up the the bags and tubs for Lindy's Friday morning retrieval! 
Please remember - we request that the THIRD-to-last-person text us the names on the remaining bags when you pick up. 
If you are one of the last two people, you may be appreciative of the reminder to fetch your food. We also need the last bag pickup member to let us know everyone has picked up. Lindy's phone number is on the clipboard. Thanks! 

What is CSA Day?... According to research done by Small Farm Central in 2015, the last week of February was the week when most of the nation’s CSA members signed up. As a result, the term CSA Day was coined to help farmers promote more sign-ups during this all-important week.Read more
Try this super-filling, satisfyingly spicy meatless meal made entirely from Fair Shares winter ingredients (all except the sesame oil). It's simple, but exceedingly delicious.Read more
Those of you who got a nice clean spinach in your shares can rejoice in a simple salad that hardly needs cleaning and is a cinch to prep. Everyone else, just suffer through the tedious destemming and two rinses... :) The salad prep is still simple and delicious.Read more
Friday, March 13th, 3:00 to 6:00p.m. We encourage everyone to stock up for our three weeks off, but we'd also love for you to come shop halfway through our break!Read more
