Eggs

Eggs can be purchased as conventional, cage-free, pasture-raised, organic, free-range, vegetarian fed, or supplemented with omega-3 fatty acids. They come in a variety of sizes and colors as well, ranging from browns and tans, to light blue, turquoise, speckled, and the common white.

Chicken eggs contain high amounts of protein, vitamin D, riboflavin, vitamins B 5 & 12, and choline. You can also find quail, duck, goose, balut and pickled eggs at our farmers’ markets!

  • Color
    White, Brown, Tan, Light Blue
  • Select
    Choose un-cracked eggs that have been laid within a week. As eggs age, they lose their nutrient value.
  • Store
    The USDA recommends refrigerating eggs to prevent the growth of salmonella. Do not store in the refrigerator door because this exposes them to too much warmth.
