Everyday Luxury - Farmer's Market Eggs

At double the price of regular eggs, it's not quite "every day" but for a lunch or supper or a poached egg for breakfast a few times a month, (really) fresh eggs are lovely. The point of everyday luxury is to make GG's editor look at ingredients/food in a different way.

We're lucky that our neighborhood farmer's market is open year-round. Perhaps that's the case for you, too. Or maybe there's a local shop or market that sells local farm eggs. If you don't have your Christmas tree or wreath or greens yet, you can probably pick those up, along with holiday flowers, at the same time.

La Tartine Gourmande has some wonderful egg recipes. And if you're feeling a bit low & sad about the gloom settling in around 3-4pm (or sooner!), take a summer stroll with Béatrice & family through a French farmer's market.
