As often as possible during the last several years, we've bought eggs at the farmer's market from our favorite farm. However a few weeks ago we got a dozen eggs from some friends with chickens, and holey moley...they are the best eggs we've ever had! Even better than the market eggs, and with all sorts of cute variety in the sizes and colors.
The yolks are nice and bright yellow/orange, and the flavor is outstanding. You really can tell a marked difference between store-bought eggs (whether they are the cheap battery-cage eggs or even the more expensive organic "free range" eggs) and farm fresh eggs. So until we get chickens of our own, we're hoping to stay on our friends' customer list for their eggs!!
