Anyone know where I can find them in the Rittenhouse Square area, other than at the farmers market.

Go onto the main food52 site and click on one of the partner sites called real time farms. I've found it to be really thorough where I live (/have lived). Great resource for finding local.

BTW, All organic eggs will be raised on a farm.

I think we're probably referring to farm raised in different ways. Neither Whole Foods nor Trader Joes carry the farm eggs I am used to getting in NYC from farmers markerts, Elis, or other specialty stores.

No, I understand. You are looking at those eggs from small farm running around outside, Joel Salatin style vs an operation that is not idealistic as Joel's. Reading Terminal may have what you are looking for. If not, contact PCO (Pennsylvania Certified Organic)or PASA (Pennsylvania Assoc of Sustainable Agriculture) for a list of farms that may be selling in Phili.

There is a place in Harrisburg that I'm pretty sure ships free range organic French copper Marans eggs.

I would second trying Reading Terminal. What sort of eggs are you looking for? I find eggs at Whole Foods and other places with organic and certified humane stickers, but I understand if you're looking for something beyond that. I live in the Rittenhouse area too and I hope you'll let me know what you find!

The other thing you can try, if you're looking for the Joel Salatin style farm, is Wyebrook Farms. They are a sustainable, rotation-type farm, and they deliver to Cook restaurant, at 20th and Rittenhouse. I've gotten beef and pork from there, and in the summer when they have pasture they'll do chicken too. Really good quality stuff. I do not know if they deliver eggs, but no harm in emailing and asking. Check it out! http://www.audreyclairecook...
