Egg Prices

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
Egg prices have risen sharply in the past few months. Prices of about $4.00 per dozen for Extra Large Grade A organic eggs seem to be about the norm. What are you paying for eggs in your area?

not organic but local farm raised $3.25-3.75 in the store about the same for brown pasture raised
not sure the price for organic.....most the eggs I buy are from free ranging, bug eating chickens

Just out of curiousity, Shel, why extra-large?

Because they're quite common in the markets here, and that's what I like to buy.

About $6 dozen (Aussie dollar almost equal to US now) That's for 700gram per dozen free range. Don't think I've seen organic eggs here

I paid $1.59 for a dozen jumbos yesterday. :D They aren't organic or anything. That's up from about $0.99 a few months ago.

I use jumbos because my egg consumption consists mostly of two egg whites for breakfast every day. I use large for baking, though. I think they were a dime cheaper this week.

The regular Kroger store brand dozen were $1.25 when I went to shopping this weekend. Sale ends tomorrow!

BTW, I got California asparagus for $1.98 per pound at Walmart.

there are an awful lot of poult eggs out now, new young chickens laying littler eggs. Paid $2.25 a dozen last Sat at the market, just depends on which farmer you buy from.....they can be $1.75-4.00 a dozen. Most of the eggs on the market are not organic but raised on soil etc....
