If your grocery store sells quail eggs, they are likely located near the delicacies, like foie gras and pate. On a recent visit, we found them priced at $0.79 per egg. That’s $9.48 per dozen.
It might be worth it for the convenience; but compare that price to the farmer’s market price of $6/dozen, or online at about $5/dozen, excluding shipping.
The real message from the market is that quail eggs are hard to find, and because of that, they are not being sold in great volume. The American poultry industry doesn’t seem interested in quail eggs, most likely due to the enormous investment they have already made in confined animal feeding operations (CAFOs) for chickens.
