A Winter Source for Farm Fresh Eggs?

roxlet Nov 29, 2008 03:54 PM

Just having returned from my sister-in-law's in San Diego, I was overwhelmed by the delicious fresh eggs we had for breakfast. The yolks were very yellow and sat up high as they were fried and were completely delicious. Now that the farmer's market season is drawing to a close, I am wondering if anyone has a source for really fresh eggs locally in lower Westchester. I seem to remember something about a fellow who raised chickens and therefore had eggs. Anyone have any thoughts or ideas about where to get great, fresh eggs?

    I don't know if this is exactly what you had in mind, but there will be an indoor farmers' market at the Westchester County Center once a month in the winter. I haven't been before, so maybe others can comment on the egg situation. I'll be there for Kiernan's grass fed beef.

      Just to update this thread, there will be winter farmers' markets in Briarcliff and Mam'k starting in January. If Cowberry Crossing is going to be there as the Community Markets website alludes to, get there early (they sold out in P'ville before 9 AM usually) and get their eggs. They are un-freaking-believable.

        Cowberry Crossing is at the Briarcliff Market-their eggs are fantastic. Thornwood and Dines also sell fresh eggs at the Mamaroneck Indoor Winter Farmers Market on Saturdays from 8:30-noon.Kiernan's Meats sells at both markets too. Also, Gajeski Produce is at both markets and he's producing lettuce and other greens from his new greenhouses! I was surprised by his variety at the Briarcliff Market.

          Is that the guy from Riverhead? We got a bag of his baby romaine and it's great... also got brussels sprouts (took Ina Garten's advice and roasted it-- yum!), sweet potatoes, and butternut squash. Unfortunately, Cowberry Crossing will not have eggs until March, but there is another vendor from Sidney Crossing selling eggs. Not quite as gorgeous as CC, but still good!

        It's not lower Westchester but the Beacon Farmers market runs all year long and they do sell fresh eggs through the winter. It's right in the parking lot of the Beacon Metro North stop.
