$2.50/dz, limit 2 cartons per person.

I've seen them roadside for $1.50/dz, but I'd rather stick with a trustworthy source.

I'm in NE Ohio.

In California during the gold rush (a hundred and fifty years ago), eggs were $1-$3 EACH!

$3.75/doz for pastured organic eggs from my guy, $3.50 for the other I know here but they weren't as good.

I think I paid $4.50 for a dozen jumbo eggs last time I bought at the farmer's mkt. They were more expensive than usual ($3.50-$4) since they were jumbos. Cheap store brand supermarket eggs are about $1.99 here.

where i live pastured eggs sell for $1.50-$2 a dozen. but 45 minutes away in the cooler, hipper, less rural towns they sell for $3-$4 a dozen. it just depends on how easy it is to find a source of pastured eggs and what other people are charging.

we have our own chickens so i don't usually buy eggs unless i'm doing a lot of baking or having a bunch of people staying at the house for several days and i know i'm going to be making a lot of big breakfasts. but when i do i buy them from a friend's farm and he charges $2 if you buy them at the farm and $3 if you buy them from him at the farmer's market.

$3.50 for free range pastured eggs at the farm. Probably not exactly organic but beautiful.

I just found out there is a farm about an hour away that sells farm-fresh eggs for $4/dozen. I don't know how they are raised or fed, yet.....

I would love to find fresh eggs for under $2/doz.

I have found a lady close to me selling them for $2/doz, but if I go to my local farmer's market they're more like $5.50/doz. Yikes, we eat a lot of eggs and that really adds up.
