Eggs-actly what you need.

Fresh & Local

Eggs are one of the most nutritious foods you can put into your body! They’re packed with protein in a low calorie form. And they consist of a beneficial blend of vitamin B, omega-3 fatty acids, zinc, and iodine - a combo that works together to fight fatigue and enhance moods!

Eating farm-fresh eggs is even more valuable. Research shows they contain up to seven times more nutrients than regular eggs! Most of that is attributed to the well rounded diet farm animals consume. Farm-fresh eggs also require less processing and come from happier animals! But local eggs are somewhat seasonal because chickens become heat stressed and don’t lay as much in the summer. The good news there is we have plenty of vendors who have eggs in the hot season! So do yourself a favor and shop the market for locally sourced eggs from our vendors who sell them. You can find eggs at any of our markets, but get there early because they sell out!

It’s been a year since the August 2016 floods wiped out the facilities and home of Bonnecaze Farm. It took strength, resilience, and some help, but they’re back as and as good as ever! Find Stacy Bonnecaze at the Tuesday market and try her grits, corn flour, oatmeal, polenta, pepper jellies, seasonings, and cornbread.
