Avoid buying eggs from a supermarket. Whether they're conventional, organic or free-range, the reality is that from the time the egg goes from the farm to the warehouse to the store, it takes about three weeks to make it into your cart. That's a long time. Instead, try to buy locally grown eggs from farm stands, farmers markets or family-run farms. Not only are these eggs fresher, but they usually taste better, too: Chickens free to roam in yards will eat what they find tasty. When chickens eat tasty, natural feed, it usually leads to better-tasting eggs.
