Nevada-Sourced Eggs

GBCFC quote from RGJ’s Aug. 26, 2010 article: Consumers likely to see higher egg prices — Price for a dozen eggs jumped 40% in New York market.

In Reno, the Great Basin Community Food Co-Op says it has plenty of fresh and local eggs, local food coordinator Nicole Sallaberry said. The eggs come from three local farms: Hungry Mother Organics in Minden, and Fontana Farms and Hadji Pauls in Palomino Valley. They are sold individually for 42 cents per egg or by the dozen for $4.99.

“We know what the living conditions are and what the chickies are eating on these farms,” Sallaberry said. “We are very connected. This is the reason we want people to buy local.”

The co-op is open daily from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.
