Happy spring! The vernal equinox -- that moment when the sun crosses the equator from south to north -- officially takes place at 9:30 p.m. PDT this Saturday, March 20. Thanks to Daylight Saving Time, the sunsets are later, and soon again, the sun will rise before 6 a.m.
Longer days mean that hens are very busy laying eggs! If you had to name a season for poultry eggs, spring would be it. The market is awash in eggs from several farms, including:
- Growing Things Farm in Snoqualmie
- Growing Washington in Whatcom County
- Kirsop Farm in Olympia
- Nash’s Organic Produce in the Sequim-Dungeness Valley
- Samish Bay Cheese in Skagit County
- Skagit River Ranch in Sedro Woolley
- Stokesberry Sustainable Farm in Olympia
(Please note: Eggs are available on a first-come, first-serve basis.)
For those who celebrate Easter, and there's an Easter Egg hunt in your future, here's a great primer on making your own natural dye from pantry items, plus the low-down on how to color hard-boiled eggs.
Speaking of hard-boiled, here's everything you need to know for cooking those eggs, for any time of year.
We are so happy that spring is here and look forward to spending the season with you! See you at market this and every Sunday.
