What Wellfleet Chickens Do Better

Wednesday is Farmers' Market Day in Wellfleet. Today is actually the last farmers market of the year. I took a photo of the back window on a pick-up last Wednesday, parked outside Preservation Hall, impressed by the sentiments expressed. Buy Fresh, Buy Local, of course. Got Oysters? And, a new one for me, Pesticides Suck. Great choice of stickers!

While at the Farmers' Market, buy some fresh flowers, and greens for a healthier dinner tonight. There are also organic eggs for sale from happy Wellfleet chickens. Once you start eating fresh local eggs, you will never go back to the supermarket kind. Sometimes, in a rush, I used to grab a dozen eggs at Stop & Shop. But, after attending the farmers' market all summer, I have come to appreciate the difference and will no longer settle for less. Can you tell which two eggs come from chickens raised on the Outer Cape?
