Salt Lake City finally has a permanent home for the Winter Farmers Market–beginning Saturday, November 9, more than 50 local vendors will be selling locally raised and produced food at the Rio Grande Depot. Last winter, several "pop-up" markets proved highly successful, paving the way for a permanent location. 

Besides produce, cheese, honey, jam, salsa, beef, lamb, pork and eggs, shoppers will find items unique to the Winter Market, such as New York-style bagels from The Bagel Project, fresh roasted Anaheim peppers from Firebird Chiles, as well as products from small purveyors including Wilson’s Wicked Mustards, Wasatch Organics juices, Biocentric Bros. mushrooms, and Terrapin Station barbeque sauces.

But, because of the silly Catch 22 legislative bind that egg purveyorJulie Clifford of Clifford Family Farms is in, one that may cost us one of our best supplies of local fresh organic farm eggs, I suggest you buy eggs. Lots of eggs. Think quiche, custard, angel food cake, meringues, frittatas and noodles. Consider carbonara or scrambled eggs for supper. Remember that contrary to the bad press eggs received some years ago, that they've been shown to be a healthy source of high-quality protein.
