Do you have a chapter for this? Ned buys eggs from her but I don't think that is what you are looking for.

chapter 8

It looks like she gave him a small whale,

"in quest of three eggs and half a pound of raisins. These articles Phoebe accordingly supplied, and, as a mark of gratitude for his previous patronage, and a slight super-added morsel after breakfast, put likewise into his hand a whale!"
