Baby Spinach pricing?

I am new to selling my produce, and am wondering what any of you are selling ready-to-eat baby spinach leaves for? How much in each bag?
Thanks,
Toni

I sell spinach (not baby) for $6.00 lbs. I usually sell it in 8oz bags for $3.00.

The only grower at our market selling baby spinach sells it for $3.50 a quarter pound. We sell regular spinach in half pound bags for $3.50.

I sell full sized spinach for $8 pound. If I had baby spinach I would charge $4 for 1/4 pound (I notice at Krogers baby spinach that looked bad was $4 for 5 oz)

Thanks so much for you input, Growing Gals!
Produce around our part of Kentucky is a dismal picture. People are enjoying having a few different things available from us - hope we are up to growing more and finding our niche!
Good season toya,
Toni

What do you consider "baby" when you sell? I pick the leaves and sometimes the leaves are larger than I would like but I pick every 4 or 5 days so they are still quite young leaves. Is there a standard?

What I do for baby spinach is plant the spinach thickly so I have to thin out 80% of the plants to get to 6" spacing for big plants. the thinnings are the baby spinach. Much less time consuming than picking leaves every few days.
