where to get local pasture raised duck eggs?

  • 4

I nearly wept when my one source of local pasture-raised duck eggs in Chicago- Kings Hill Farm- said supply was low and they wouldn't be carrying them for while.

Does ANYONE else in the whole city sell regionally-sourced duck eggs from pasture? I've already seen extensively on here that I can get duck eggs from Asian markets, but who knows where they're from or how the ducks are raised.

  1. As of 3-4 weeks ago, Produce Express--in the Chicago French Market--carried them in packs of 6 or 12. The French Market is located @ 131 N Clinton on the west side of the loop. Produce Express is in the middle aisle on the far west side of the market.

    I haven't been in a few weeks, so you may want to call and ask.

    PRODUCE EXPRESS
    Hours: Monday - Friday 7:00 AM - 7:30 PM | Saturday 8:00 AM - 4:00 PM

      Note that if you're taking public transit, the French Market is inside the Ogilvie Center, the destination for many Metra commuter train lines. And if you're driving, they offer free validated parking. See the French Market's website at www.frenchmarketchicago.com for more information.

      1. At the Evanston Farmer's Market theirs is a stand that sells both duck parts and duck eggs they raise themselvers. They definitely let the ducks run around. There is no name on the stand, but they have a board up showing the meat they sell (the pork is excellent). I think they are called Gast Farms, but as I say, there is no sign.
