    I have 300 laying hens and I sell eggs at the farmers market.

    I use new cartons for sales to customers only.

    I currently get 200 new x-large stryofoam cartons non-print for $56 (shipping included in that price) from www.eggboxes.com----I have been buying from them for close to 8 years.

    this has been the cheapest I find online....well, the cheapest I CAN FIND.......anyone know of a better price. Just checking if I am missing a good site for cheaper cartons.

    Any more profit in my wallet is a good thing [​IMG]

    Thanks for any info.

    I don't know any cheaper site but have you tried posting on your local Craigslist? I mentioned needing egg cartons to my son's bus driver and the next day she gave me 20+ cartons she'd been saving. Every little bit helps.

    Can you just have you customer return the egg cartons and fill the order right there at the farmer market?

    thanks


    yea I do have return cartons and use only the best of the best that are not dirty for some reason.

    that does save money. But I do go thru alot of them and wondered if I could get my paws on a cheaper price than what I pay now.

    I googled a bit and saw nothing better than what I have, my company ships immediately and is a great company to buy from.......but being this is a big chicken site, I thought I would ask...LOL

    until january 21st you can get 500 mis print egg cartons from egg cartons.com for free shipping and it is 75.00 or 1000 for 145.00. I got some of course before they had the free shipping special [​IMG] and was happy with them. you have to put coupon code 12009 in to get the free shipping offer though.
    ETA: I just realized you said styro these are paper but the ones I got were very strong.

    check local grocery stores, sometime you can get them from them after they discard the broke eggs.
