It seems like every other news report this past week has been about eggs and the massive recall from a couple of the largest egg producing factories in the United States. Scary stuff.
Makes me glad to know where our eggs come from, but even if we didn’t know our egg layers personally (and we do), I know where we’d be going to get our next dozen: our local farmer’s market. Small scale farmers know their chickens and if you’ve never tried a fresh egg before you are missing out my friends!
And, while we’re on the topic of eggs, I’d like to look at the difference between the types of eggs available, because I think that can be a little confusing when you’re staring at the egg shelves in the grocery store.

So, there you have it. Make your egg selections wisely – you are what you eat, after all. Eggs are one of the few things I’m willing to pay a little extra for when I do have to buy them at the grocery store. But, you might find a better deal at your local farmers’ market!
