source for backyard chicken eggs on the Peninsula?

Thanks, I'm not a fan of Whole Foods but I see they are also sold through Bianchini's in San Carlos. I'll check 'em out, thanks again.

making the trek up to Point Reyes Station could be something I could talk myself into if picking up a few dozen oysters was part of the bargain :)

Palo Alto would be great. Incidentally, my regular source for eggs developed a problem with her hens, losting a couple and getting mites in the rest. I guess chickens are a lot more complicated than we realize!

Hi Robert,
Interesting, I shop at Sigona's every week and have not seen eggs promoted (I buy Marin Sun beef there quite often), but I also usually reach for one brand of eggs there so it could be that I have overlooked them.

On another note, I saw from Marin Sun's website that they have Rhode Island and Americauna hens, I've had Americaunas before (when we had chickens) and I have to say I'm not much of a fan of that breed for eggs.

Thanks, I'll check in next time I am at Sigona's.

I live in the Redwood City area and lost my source of backyard chicken eggs. Can you recommend a regular source of eggs, 1-2 dozen per week?

I am not stuck on the notion of "backyard" in this context, really what I want are eggs that feature rich orange colored yolks. If they come from a local commercial producer and are offered through a local retail outlet I really don't care that much.

Thank you in advance.

Basic Scrambled Eggs

I use a small dutch oven or a covered pot instead of a pan... the tall sides and cover keeps the moisture intact while the eggs curdle, at which point water will separate and evaporate off when you remove the cover. This is a foolproof and easy way to turn out moist, fluffy scrambled eggs that Julia would approve of.
