What time of the year, eggs are cheaper?
And Why?

May is National Egg Month. More eggs are sold in America during the Easter Season – usually in April – than at any other time of the year.

Then, sales go down, but the hens keep on laying eggs.

After Easter, because the supply of eggs is normal but the demand for eggs is less, their price ordinarily goes down.

Starting in May and running through the summer, eggs are usually an even better bargain than they are the rest of the year.

Though the American Egg Board and other groups, the American egg industry celebrates National egg Month in May to remind home cooks how good eggs are.

Egg farmers want cooks to remember that eggs are nutritious to eat and simple to make in many different ways … plus eggs are especially easy to afford from May unit the end of summer.
