help with gourmet pricing
    #4271094 - 06/08/05 11:39 AM (11 years, 5 months ago)

in my area there isn't any other growers to the best of my knowledge, I got a hold of some fine dining places n the only thing is i don't know what to charge them, I was thinking $10/lb. since they will have top quality mushrooms the day they are harvested, and i know what they charge for a plate of food! what do you think, could i get more at farm markets? Restraunts will buy year round though so that is a plus..\

Well, start with: what does it cost you to produce and deliver 1 pound of mushrooms? Include ALL expenses.
Example:
http://www.fao.org/documents/show_cdr.asp?url_file=///DOCREP/004/AB497E/ab497e08.htm

Click on "Annex 4. Cost estimate for mushroom bag production"

THere was a guy here awhile ago, creekfarmer, that got very high prices for his oyster mushrooms, between $8-$12. I talked to a restaurant around me, a good high quality restaurant, and he told me that he was already buying them for about $4 a pound but was unhappy with the consistancy.

On
http://marketnews.usda.gov/portal/fv
you go the the "Run a custom report" form.

http://marketnews.usda.gov/portal/fv?paf...=18&Go.y=10

Then you chose MUSHROOMS, and the state you want the report for, and the timeframe.

A result can be something like this:

For the farmers markets, just try to meet or beat the local grocery stores. If they disapear too fast and you run out of product before the end of the day, raise your price per unit.
