Welcome to Fair Shares Week 25!

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


 

September Sanity Break Next Week!

Official Notice #5:  There will be no pickup next week, Week 26, September 25 and 26. ODD-week half shares picking up this week may ignore this completely, because you won't even feel it (except that you'll notice how relaxed we are at your next pickup, but all Full, Mini, and Delivered shares will have a week off, and EVEN-week half share members, we'll see you on October 9th.
 

Notes on Trades and Orders

Please do not add items to your cart 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, 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 and other choices by switching these items to your preferred choices in your cart. 

Fair Shares Mothership and UCity Pickup Members: The online store closes at 11am on the day of your pickup, so be sure to login and make your trades before then.

Kirkwood and Delivered Share Members: You have until 9:00 on Thursday morning to place orders. Keep in mind that Wednesday pickups and on-site purchases might make the quantity available in the store 

KIRKWOOD MEMBERS: Please note a new policy. We request the THIRD to last person text us when you pick up. If you are one of the last two people, you may be appreciative of the reminder to fetch your food. Thanks!

 

This is a great way to prepare okra if you are not a fan of it generally. This makes a crispy, crunchy treat even the kids will eat.Read more

CSA-eating

There is a learning curve to eating locally and seasonally, so give yourself and your family the time to figure it out. It's worth learning because it can save you time and money, make you a more creative cook, and teach you to appreciate your food more as you savor the delicious quality of produce at it's peak of flavor when it's in season. MiniShare.adj_.jpg As I look at recipes, I automatically adjust them according to what is in my refrigerator and cupboard. I've learned to cook according to what I have available.

The trick to making this rich, intensely-flavored summer treat so delicious is roasting it to within an inch of its life, allowing the juices to concentrate and caramelize. Serve over pasta, rice, polenta, cooked greens or crostini, or fold into an omelet or a sandwich. Seriously, wow--this is the secret to falling in love with ANY vegetable, and I mean ANY...Read more
Summer is wrapping up, and we're both happy and sad about it. Although it may seem to be taking it's sweet time regarding cooling down, we are seeing a shift in produce. Nolte took the week off from harvesting, and John Kopmann doesn't have corn this week. Tomatoes and green beans are still producing, and peppers are coming on strong. Eggplant, and summer squash are slowing way down, but okra is picking up and winter squash and potatoes are ready. Peaches are gone, but apples are here in full force. We're seeing the first of the fall broccoli and bok choy, which means more of the cruciferous ...Read more
