the new farm GROPX is a great place to check 
out what people are cxharging in your area. 
many Ky Farmers' markets are listed. go to 
http://www.newfarm.org than click on the link 
to the OPX and on that page you will find a 
link to the GROPX.

I get 75¢ for a green pepper (if it is 
smallish than 50¢ ea) and between $1 and 
$1.50 for a ripe pepper. I don't grow banana 
peppers any more, they never sold well for 
me, even back when people canned. I'd sell 
them for 3 or 4 for a dollar. Cayennes I put 
10 in a  pint box and sell for a buck or 25¢ 
ea, or you can make ristras or 20 or so and 
sell for $5.
