Will the regs allow customers to search in the cooler for the dozen they want? I think for customers its about choice.

Richard,

The way we solved that was to buy a really cute stuffed hen - maybe 1.5 times life sized - at TSC. Put the cooler of eggs on our table and set the hen on top of it win a sign about buying eggs from the happy hens at Au Naturel Farm, and taped a sign on the front of the cooler with verbiage about the eggs and the price.

Our market is now enforcing the regs that eggs be kept in a cooler, only one doz allowed for display.  Since we've begun that, our egg sales are MUCH slower.  Our primary egg vendor is sitting on 100 doz and counting, and is now trying to sell his hens.

Want to help him out, and our other egg vendors.

How to let customers know we still have local, free range eggs?

Apparently, they're quite reluctant to buy what appears to be that last dozen on the table, not knowing cooler(s) full of eggs are waiting to be sold!!  Didn't know eggs were an impulse buy.

Any and all advice appreciated, as I'm on the committee that let the vendors know of these changes!
