Prices to Restaurants VS. Farmers Markets and other Places
How does the price you get vary at different places for your produce?
Farm to table restaurants, small stores that feature organic or local farmers pledge produce?
What does/should a small farm to table place pay for tomatoes? 1/2 pints of really good blackberries ($3 at market). Will they pay anything for big fresh onions? I have gotten as much $1.50 for 1 pound+ sweet onions with green tops and the market manager said I should have asked for $2.00. I can't imagine a restaurant paying $2 for an onion no matter how good.
The restaurant I sold butternut squash to did pay the same as market $1.25 lb a couple of year ago. I am asking $1.50 this year .
