R.I.P. Harlan Clark, St. Lawrence Market’s legendary Egg Man
Harlan Clark, the man who St. Lawrence Market shoppers know as the Egg Man, passed away on Tuesday. CBC Radio One carried the sad news this morning, giving proper respect to the six decades that Clark and his wife, Norine, sold fresh eggs from their farm in Port Perry. Their peewees, jumbos and extra-larges are “light-years fresher than any of the industrially produced ones you’ll find at Loblaws,” according to Toronto Life writer Chris Nuttall-Smith, who profiled the couple in our pages last summer. “When we retire, I don’t know what my husband will do,” Norine told Nuttall-Smith. “It’ll be a shock for him. We’re so busy here that we don’t have a social life in Port Perry. The market is our social life.” Indeed, Clark will be missed at St. Lawrence by his customers, friends and fans.
