St. Lawrence Market - Harlan Clark eggs vs Sunrise Egg Farm

What do you think of the quality of eggs at the Sunrise Egg Farm stall in the St. Lawrence Market (north end on Saturday mornings)? When I bought eggs from the late Harlan Clark, I found his eggs were fresh (e.g. the whites of the egg were thick, the eggs were compact and not runny when cracked in the pan and the shells were difficult to peel when the eggs were boiled). For the last two months, I’ve been buying Sunrise Eggs and their eggs don’t behave in the same way as Harlan Clark’s. After purchasing 2 dozen eggs at the stall, I immediately went home and hardboiled two eggs, but the eggs were VERY easy to peel. Isn’t that the sign of an older egg? There are always crowds at the Sunrise table at 8:00am in the mornings … have I just been unlucky with my purchases or is the quality of this product not very good? Should I be going back to Loblaw’s to buy my eggs?

  1. Isn't Harlan's wife still at the market?

    We've been getting our eggs at Fresh from the Farm on Donlands and are quite happy with them.

    1. We bought some eggs from Sunrise a couple of weeks ago and they were quite hard to peel. Mind you, they were pee wees (large were sold out) so I'm not sure if that affects "peelability".

      According to the sign at the Sunrise table, Harlan's wife retired after Mr. Clark's death.
