Where are you buying your Easter eggs?

This year I decided to go with naturally colored eggs ... those blue and green shell eggs. Will also have some plain white and brown eggs.

Fatted Calf in Napa sells Soul Food Farm free-range eggs (707-469-0499) that had the largest number of green eggs to go with my ham. There were four in a dozen with a bonus blue egg. Gotta love Oxbow. I can get good eggs anyday of the week without having to chase down a farmers market. $6 dozen.

TomaTero Orangics eggs that sells at the Oakland Grand Lake market has one or two green eggs per dozen. Currently this is my favorite egg vendor ... the eggs taste good and have bright yolks. $6 dozen $5.50 if you bring your own egg carton.

I also like the taste of B bar L (705 Richards Ave, Gridley, Ca) which sellls also sells at Grand Lake and the Thursday San Rafael farmers market. Only brown and white eggs. $2.50 half a dozen ... never buy more than that, so don't know the other prices.

At Ferry Plaza, Eatwell Farms has some colored eggs mixed in a dozen. $5 - $7 depending on size.

For years, my go to vendor at Ferry Plaza were the eggs-elent white eggs at Petaluma Farms ... though part of it had to do with Stan's cheery personality. He's the third generation of this family farm. Back running the farm, is brother Steve whose wife, Judy (of Judy's Family Farm Eggs), also comes from a chicken-raising family. Don't remember the eggs-act price but I think they range from $2-$3 a dozen.

For bargain hunters and those that dye their own, Grocery Outlet in San Pablo usually has Judy's organic eggs $1.99 for 18 white eggs ... but the closer to the weekend, the less likely you'll find them.
