Where to Get Farm Fresh Eggs in Austin Any Day of the Week

italyvespa Jun 28, 2010 03:33 PM

Where can you buy farm fresh eggs in Austin? What times should you go? Are any of these places open every day of the week for egg business (or multiple days)? I'd love to hear what options are available.

Also, a side note - does anyone have a preference on eggs from one farm over another?

I know you can get eggs from several vendors at the downtown farmers market on Saturdays (9am-1pm). Also Boggy Creek Farm sells local Vital Farm's USDA Certified Organic/Pastured Hens' eggs on Wednesdays and Saturdays (9am-1pm).

    Wheatsville carries Alexander Farm eggs consistently, and Whole Foods carries Jeremiah Cunningham's certified organic eggs @ around $6/dozen.

      The Alexander Farm eggs are our favorite, and along with Wheatsville, you can find them at Fresh Plus (or at the fram in Del Valle, I believe).

      Wheatsville also offers a couple of other options (Vital Farms, and another local producer that I forgot.) Honestly, pastured eggs are so much better, you can't really lose.

      If you're interested, there's an annual tour of Austin's urban/backyard chicken coops. The next one is coming up in April. Check out http://fccooptour.blogspot.com/2011/0... for more.

      The downtown Whole Foods also carries Vital Farms eggs.
