    We are struggling with the issue of pricing our produce. We raise organic veggies and have been elected to a local farmers market, where we are the only organic growers.
    Does anyone know where we could find pricing information?
    Thanks

    I try to price my produce about the same as the local health food store, or a little bit lower. Many natural foods stores have websites with weekly pricing listed.

    Try not to price anything by weight. In my state (Washington) that requires a certified scale. So sell by the bunch or eaches.
