I want to try to buy eggs from small-scale hobby farmers after seeing this site:

Eggzy: Find farm fresh eggs from local backyard chicken flock owners

I added my east side zip code in that site's search box, and most of the sellers hadn't updated their status since 2011.

Anyone tried doing this? One of my friend's gave me some eggs his hens laid, and they were a lot tastier than the best store bought products.

Have you looked into your local resource: Puget Sound Fresh ? This link has information about all the Farmer's market all over Puget Sound and what those farmer's market sell.

IIRC, Bellevue Farmer's Market definitely had eggs. You can also look to the Valley Medical Center Farmer's Market as well, I remember seeing it there. And Carnation has lots of farms, farmer's market around as well-- check those out! :-)

When I worked in the Seattle area years ago, I remember three or four of my coworkers sold eggs from the chickens they kept. It was great as we'd all wait our turn to get the chance to buy the eggs. Sometimes the demand didn't seem as great and we'd be able to buy as many as we'd want. Have you asked around at work?

I also remember a small farm or two out in the Carnation area where you could purchase fresh eggs. The one that sticks in my mind is Dog Mountain. I just looked it up and they still have a website up --click here.

My opinion only and my opinion doesn't mean much.

You need to make friends with people who have chickens =) So far my husband and I both have coworkers that share their backyard chickens' eggs with us...for no charge! They just like to share!

I am an egg connoisseur , or at least, a guy who is very picky about the quality of eggs.. I will warn you that many farm fresh eggs are still not all that healthy as people will feed their chickens GMO soy and corn.

The best eggs I have found are the Organic, Non-GMO, Non-Soy eggs from Baron Farms.. This s a local company and so far they are the best quality I could find. Be warned they are not cheap. Back when I was in Idaho, getting farm fresh eggs that could blow your mind for $4/dozen was easy. Not in Western Washington . Those eggs I mention go for around $6-7 a dozen, but you will not find an egg that is more nutritious around here. I have done a lot of searching and talked with many smaller farmers, many who still "Cheat".

Anyhow, I thought I just share the suggestion. You can purchase those eggs I mention at Central Co-Op in Seattle.

What about the eggs available at PCC? That's where I've been buying mine for a couple months now.
