Spring Street Farm Stand

On Tuesdays during my lunch break, I usually head over to the Spring Street Farm Stand and pick up some fresh food. The stand is small but has a good selection. After filling my grocery bag, I wander past their field to the chicken coop and hang with the birds while I eat my lunch. The stand, the farm, and the chickens are a tiny peaceful oasis in the middle of chaotic city life.

A few weeks ago I had a real treat: my first eggs that came straight from the chickens’ caboose. They were everything I’d heard fresh eggs would be: glowing golden yolks with thick creamy whites. And completely delicious. I’m converted.

The Spring Street Farm Stand is in the city of Long Beach at the corner Spring St and Elm Ave. They’re open Tuesdays and Fridays from 10am to 5pm.

  1. Some experts say there’s no more nutrition in a fresh egg with golden yolks, that sit up and say “hello” when you’re frying them, than a store bought egg with wimpy yellow yolks, but I disagree emphatically.
