Welcome to Fair Shares Week 8!

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

 New Kirkwood Location Starting This Week 

Our pickup location is at Kirkwood United Methodist Church at Clay and Adams starting this week. We will keep the same hours as previously, 1:30 - 6:30. Though the church closes later, we want to make sure that all the bags get picked up while we still have time to do something about it. Please refer to the previously emailed instructions from last week on the new procedure we ask you all to follow.


 

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 our 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 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.

I like treating gnocchi like the sassy little dumplings that they are. I rarely boil them in water, and more often bake them or just toss them in with the other ingredients in the dish, allowing them to cook through, from frozen to a little fluffy, and hopefully even crispy and browned a bit.Read more
Salads with fresh seasonal fruit and nuts make springtime such a joy, and this homemade salad dressing says "I love you" (even if you're just talking to yourself, because who are we really kidding here? I'm cooking for me--if you happen to be here and get some of my leftovers, well, lucky you...).Read more
Operation Food Search created this dish at a recent event for the Fruit & Vegetable Presciption shares at the Care StL clinic. It's a pretty simple recipe that's easy to adapt to whatever fresh produce is in season, and especially good when created with our local ingredients.Read more
Operation Food Search invited Fair Shares to be the food provider in a new Fruit and Vegetable Prescription program they created at the CareSTL Health clinic. This pilot, along with the Fresh Rx program, is another great food-as-medicine resource that Fair Shares is excited to be involved with. Here's how it works:Read more
