Selling at farmer's market?
    #5043211 - 12/10/05 10:24 AM (8 years, 7 months ago)

Where I live, there is a farmer's market that is mixed average income and rich (and quite a few tourists). Anyhow, I thought about trying to setup and sell log grown shiitake, wine caps, dried reishi, and maybe elm oyster. I am not growing all of these now so but I would start with shiitake (fresh and dried) and wine caps. I also thought I would pass out an info sheet with health benefits, log grown virtues, and some recipes etc. Anyhow, has anyone attempted this and how did it work out? What best prices should be anticipated for shiitake?
Thanks!

That is a pretty cool idea. I'm sure that some people would be interested. I surely would be if I saw something like that in the local farmer's market here.

I sale to a local farmer's market in summer. A stand is only 25$ per season. My special BBQ Shiitake, Golden Oyster, White Oyster and big Lion's Mane in a good looking rapping gets 14$/pd. King Bolete and Chanterelle give me 16$/pd.. I sale less from the other kinds.

I'm thinking of doing this, too, with my local farmer's market--assuming I can get some decent medicinal/edible fruits.  :shrug:

I tried to sale medicinal mushrooms, but they are no buyers
