Finding Farm-Fresh Eggs

julius_ii | Sep 17, 2008 09:12 AM

Inspired by this morning's story in the New York Times on eggs (see below) I'm wondering where to find the best eggs in Montreal.

NYTimes story:

I've seen the egg vendors at JTM with alluring varieties ("pintade," "caille"), but wonder about their provenance. "Pasture raised?" "Humane raised and handled?" (These terms may not have any regulated meaning in Canada, where oversight and language is different from the USA: a problem all its own).

What I'm hoping to find is a reliable farmer (or, in a pinch, a good supermarket brand) that produces the nicest, most naturally-raised, and most flavorful eggs.

What's your experience with eggs?
