With great many households on the island having a garden with their own hens, It was still surprisingly difficult for me to find a source of free range eggs. It took me many months to find someone to buy eggs from on a regular basis. People mostly have only a few hens and have just about enough eggs for themselves, no need to sell any.

But there is an option for all of us, who know how important and healthy eggs are and who know the difference between those 4 numbers on the egg shell – Greenhouse in Hvar is offering free range eggs, always fresh and ready for you to enjoy whether raw or as an omelette.
Greenhouse can be found in the street parallel to Riva. Just turn after Splitska banka and follow the signs. And while you are there, be sure to try one of their delicious smoothies or gluten-free sandwiches, not to mention all of the other organic goodies they offer.
