Farm Stand Prices


Recommended Posts

Sunday's NYT Quick Bites has an article with prices for various crops in Hackettstown (western NJ). It's interesting comparing them to what I paid in Madison and Montclair farmers markets this week

 

Corn: 50 to 60 cents there. 60 cents in Madison, 70 cents in Montclair, and 60 cents at the Matarazzo market in North Caldwell

 

White and Yukon potatoes: 99 cents a pound to $1.19, versus $1 in Madison and $1.25 in Montclair (from several of the same merchants)

 

Heirloom Tomatoes: $2.49 there vs $2.50 in Montclair (I don't recall seeing them in Madison this week)

 

 

Quick Bite, after you pay

Whoa, our potatoes out here are $3 a pound for Yukon Gold and others. Yikes! But only $2/pound for heirloom tomatoes.

Per ear? I assume you refer to sweet corn, but what varieties? Around here, gene su corn is significantly cheaper than gene su(sub2) varietals, and gene se and se+ hybrids are somewhere in between.

 

Here in Flint, mid-Michigan, se and se+ corn is about 35 cents an ear.
