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.
