Ok, this is an admittedly strange post. But if you, like many others, are finding it hard to find eggs at the moment, and you're based near Dalston, Stokie, Hackney, then I can help.
Back in 2016 I made friends with an amazing free-range egg farmer called Phil, and since then have had his eggs delivered direct from the farm to Dalston (Somerford Grove).
I do this because I like good eggs. I get a delivery of large, very fresh eggs with deep yellow yolks about once a week and normally have some spares which I sell to other people in our street/who are local.
At the moment it's collection only, and the eggs are £6 per 15.
Order at https://bit.ly/3az96Nc or ask any questions below and I'll do my best.
A couple of people have asked about payment:
You can pay on collection.
Wish you were near kingston our local shop get sold out very early .
Supermarkets are rubbish for eggs at the moment. Butchers and local delis are better. One positive change from this situation might be more people shopping more locally. If I were out east I would definitely be supporting the forum heggler.
Yeah they hit and miss will try the locals in the next few days.
We live next to each other. Hi.
I just bought some eggs but when I run out I'll hit you up.
@NurseHolliday Roger that.
When is your next delivery? Miss having decent eggs, so will speak to a few friends as we all like nice eggs.
I swap sourdough loaves for fresh eggs from people in our village.
Love this! Nice one.
@ElephantBreathlynx Next drop should be here Friday in time for the weekend.
@dancing james Love a bit of barter. Now I just need to find a baker! :)
Dusty Knuckle is back on the 14th.
Can confirm that Simon is a real person and the eggs are really good and fresh.
(Also, lurking in the street waiting for egg exchange really enhances your lockdown experience.)
Just ordered 30 thanks v much for sharing
Great idea. Done. Thanks!
There's other food out there mate, you don't have to eat eggs for every meal.
@NurseHolliday hi mate just to let you know eggs will save us from this wretched virus cheers mate
he may be baking or doing some sous vide egg yolk emulsions, who knows...:)
Really nice idea, what temperature?
In case anyone else wants eggs for the 'weekend', I've got a bunch arriving tomorrow and have a few left. Order at https://bit.ly/3az96Nc.
Can also meet locally (whilst out for my one a day) if that would be convenient.
Ordered some, any chance of meeting towards E10?
Doesn't matter if you can't, I have a bike
Ordered some as well! Excite!
basically twice the price of large free range eggs from shops (a dozen is normally around £3)but with no middle man.
See also: breweries who sell their beer from their own premises for at least, sometimes more than, the price of a similar pint in a pub- despite, again, having no middleman.
Don’t get me wrong- business is business and the price has quite rightly been set at what the customers are clearly willing to pay. Certainly not laughing at the vendor here.
