Shop your supermarket.

While eggs from the farmer’s market may seem fresher, they aren’t subject to the same regulations as commercial eggs. "When you buy eggs at the farmers' market you don’t know where that egg has been, if it’s been refrigerated, or if it’s been washed or cleaned," says Mary Torell, public information officer with the Poultry and Egg Division of the Nebraska Department of Agriculture. "When you buy eggs from the grocery store you know they have been gathered quickly, USDA inspected, washed, transported in refrigerated trucks and shipped to the supermarket within 36 to 48 hours of being laid."
