    I would like to know of place one could find the market price for different roots and herbs. There are two buyers here in Indiana but would like a list of buyers from all over the U.S.A . Medicinal root and herb dealers , Wildcraft dealers . I also would like some ideas on crafts from things made from the woods ? Thanks for any help! Indiana Country Friend Jack Bunyard

    I would like to help but don't know what you have there, Sang is in high demand in NC and I can get you intouch with people who buy all you can get, I have a friend that ownes a health food store in Ashville NC if you have a list of what you have, you or I, could call them with that. We tip around here, That is taking the tips of fir trees and sell them to people that make wreaths, but that doesn't start until Thanksgiving. I will keep thinking

    Good topic. I sell wild-picked paw paws during the season. But it's brief, and due to the nature of the fruit - must be local (they do NOT ship well).

    You might start by asking in local herb stores? I'd be interested in what other people could add - hence my bump.

    You can get all the info you need if you use "Google", try a search for Herb buyers and see what you get.
