I am not sure of the going rate with you, but what I did was trawl a few markets, estimate a price from what was on sale there and then make sure this covered my costs. The price I arrived at has never been quailed at. I charge exactly the same for everything, finding I make a good mark up on things like lemon curd and almost nothing on others. Again no-one has complained. Lastly, when I costed out some jams, like my absolute fav Melon and ginger, I nearly passed out and decided not to offer this for sale.
ps; my price is 5 euros per 340g jar
5 Euros is quite a good price for us over here, Shelley (as sellers).
Fiona's garden gate experiment is quite exciting for us. Our gateway is on a pretty sharp S-bend in our village so it will take some novel marketing skills and BIG handmade signs to draw attention to our wares. But we hope that with attractive packaging and simple (but not too cheap) pricing, plus an offer to mail them overseas in time for Christmas, it might all work out OK.
Never knowingly underfed
