Eggs: What I look forward to at the Farmer's Market

We have eleven days to go for the West Frederick Farmer's Market to open. While patiently waiting and counting down days, I am making a list of what I look forward to at the market. If you have been busy and  haven't had a chance to reflect on what the farmer's market brings to us, this list will hopefully help you remember the joy of going to farmer's market and get excited. If you haven't had a chance to shop at the farmer's market, hopefully this series will entice and encourage you to come out and join the crowd at the market. While making the list, I will focus on the items that will be available on May 2.

The first on my list is eggs. Dan and I are egg lovers. We go through two to three dozens of eggs a month. Dan is a master of breakfast and he cooks wonderful breakfasts every weekend. However he has a weakness - without eggs, his repertoire for breakfast shrinks significantly. It is very important that we are well stocked with fresh yummy eggs all the time, and the farmer's market is the place to get the freshest and most delicious eggs.
Nancy of Chesapeake's choice, Wendy of Persimmon Pond Plants, Rick of Summer Creek Farm, Danny of Rohrer's Meats etc, and Randy of South Mountain Creamery carry beautiful, free-range eggs. Rick's eggs are not only free-range, but also certified organic. Wendy, Danny and Randy all have beautiful brown eggs that are from happy chickens that roam the fields.  Nancy brings rainbow eggs with beautiful tan and robin-blue colored eggs which I absolutely adore.  I have a confirmation from Rick, Nancy, and Wendy that they will have eggs on May 2. Add eggs on your list - you will be glad.
