Hunting for Duck Eggs?
I’ve been on the hunt for duck eggs recently here in the Charlotte area. I’ve been surprised at how many people have asked about them lately, but for good reason. Many people that are sensitive to chicken eggs actually do just fine with duck eggs. Interesting, isn’t it? Maybe because most of us end up eating chicken eggs so much that our bodies just want a break?
I have done some research and asked around and have come up with some resources that may be helpful in the duck egg hunt. I haven’t bought eggs from any of these places myself, but I’m hoping if any of you have, you’ll share your experiences so we can help other people that are on the hunt.
Some of these are general resources for farms or farmers markets in the area. I am hoping as we move closer towards spring and more of the farmers markets start happening around town, we may find even more people who have duck eggs. The next time you are at your favorite farmers market, start asking the vendors there. If the farms know a lot of people are wanting them, maybe we can convince them it’s a product that they should bring to market. It can’t hurt to try!
These resources are all over the Charlotte area and beyond, so check out which ones might be convenient to your area. If you find a good resource, let us know! It’s so important to support our local farmers and, in turn, we get a high quality product that will help us eat healthier!
