    Local produce store is selling them $.89 a lb. with or without the greens, Bundled with greens attached and loose to bag yourself. Since I have no use for the greens and therefor don't wish to pay for the weight, I bag the loose radishes myself for the same price. Supermarket down the road has bagged (no greens) radishes for $.99 (pretty much 14 to 16 ozs.)

    Since your profile doesn't give me a clue as to where you are......I don't have a clue. Price by zone is very relative. When I am making pricing decisions I check the local grocery stores, and the organic store and price accordingly and according to the competition.

    I would put an amount in a bag that I think would be worth a dollar. People at Farmer's Markets, etc... like things that are priced in dollar increments. How many you place in the bag depends on supply and demand.

    I sold them all. :)

    I placed 8 ounces in a sack and sold out at $1.00 each.

    Thanks for the help guys, I had no clue because the local grocer had none, I try to stay up with him.... but of course, homestead veggies are best! :)
