Foodie Agenda: Pasture-Raised Eggs, Food Trucks in the FiDi (and more)
Today, Feb. 1
The next time you go to the Ferry Building Farmers Market for eggs, you'll see only the pasture-raised variety from hens let free to roam outside. CUESA says the change goes into effect this month and that pastured eggs have around 10 percent less fat, 40 percent more vitamin A, 34 percent less cholesterol, and up to 20 times more healthy omega-3 fatty acids than those from factory farms.
