Celebrating The Small Victories In Eating Well, Switching From Commercial to Pasture (free-range) Eggs, Part 2

    How do I know which eggs are local in my supermarket if I haven’t met any of our local farmers at the farmers market this past summer?

      Dwan, thanks for the question, it’s a great one! When we can’t get to the farmer’s market, or run out of eggs before the weekend market, we found local farm fresh free-range eggs from our grocery store. They caught my eye with the “Produced Locally” claim on the carton. Sure enough, they are produced by a licensed community of Amish farmers about a hour and a half from us. They are truly free-range, we just had to do a bit of research. My point is that you can find them, but may need to do a bit of research. Truly local, free-range eggs will be much easier to find at a health or whole food market. You can also use websites such as http://www.localharvest.org/ to find locally sourced food. Just enter in “Eggs” under product, and then your zip code in location, and you should find some very helpful detailed information on where to find eggs (and other local foods) from farmers in your area. I hope this helps!
