Welcome to Fair Shares Week 41!

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

Happy New Year!

Thank you to all who came to shop at one of our happy hours over the holiday, and those who didn't, we appreciate you spending some extra money to get us through the long break. It's helped a lot.

T'is the season for resolutions and being healthier in the new year, so please think about bringing friends or family in during your pickup to check out Fair Shares. We help make it easy to eat healthy food! They can choose to do a trial on the spot or schedule for a later date.

We' re in the countdown to the end of Season 12--only 8 weeks until our March break!

 


 

Trades and Orders

New Ordering Deadlines

We won't change the online store hours until the first of the year to give everyone a chance to read this and adjust to the new timeframe, but we are now asking ALL MEMBERS to place online orders by Wednesday at 11a.m.


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, Wildcard$ and other choices by switching these items to your preferred choices in your cart. 

KIRKWOOD MEMBERS: Please remember - we request 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! 

 

This flavor combo is sure to bring a smile to your face.Read more
Applesauce makes for a moist and delicious cake. I would probably cut back a bit on the sugar in this recipe to make it a little less sweet--more like a quickbread, or even substitute a bit of maple syrup or honey for some of the sugar.Read more
You can use butternut, acorn, buttercup, kabocha, or any of the sweeter, orange-fleshed winter squash for this easy salad with chevre and toasted pecans. Simple deliciousness.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
Member Joanne McAndrews offered another stellar-looking recipe that I adjusted to a Fair-Shares-ingredients version. The original version called for aritchoke hearts, and no meat. Check out the original from the Eating Well site and see my adaptations (in red).Read more
Hot peppers added a special excitement to this simple sweet and savory side dish. Try adding meatballs, sausage or other cooked ground meat, and a sprinkle of cheese. Then serve over pasta, rice or salad for a square meal.Read more
