edible egg?

During farmer's market season I try to buy my eggs from Silverbrook Farm. This guy treats his hens way better than my boss treats me, and the reward is a round, robust, deeply orange yolk that stays intact unless you really stab at it. But recent salmonella scares have created more demand than he can accommodate.

This past week I arrived too late, so I had to try something ostensibly organic, veg-fed and cage-free from the supermarket. Wan, pale-yellow, flat yolks made for a tasteless Sunday breakfast. And as autumn wears on I can't depend on Mr. Silverbrook for much longer. Are there any flavorful eggs available in local markets?
