Six Extra Large Free Range Eggs in a recycled box.

Where and how is it used?

I cook them at home. Generally we have them scrambled, on toast, with some sliced avocado.

What did you or someone else pay for it?

£1.60

Why do you want to add it to the museum?

These eggs are the livelihood of the producer/ farmer that we buy them from.
At the Farmer's Market Vic lets us select our own eggs and pack our boxes.
I think that the human contact is a valuable part of the exchange, we talk about everything from wider social events to the conditions on the farm and the politics of the (farmer's) market.
Through talking with him we found that by bringing our boxes (and elastic bands) back, we were saving him 20p a week.
