You won't believe this, but I actually saw a customer walk away from a
vendor because they thought $3/dozen was too high for fresh corn!

We do five markets during the week and two different wholesale outlets
who pick up at the farm and all of our weekly markets have dwindled very
seriously and we dought if we will be doing any of them next year.  Many
of the products we sell any more are high end products and we feel like
the small town buyers just won't spend the extra money to by the baby
lettuce and mixes and the specially products.  When we go these markets
it seem like all we can sell is sweet corn and tomatoes and they are not
my high end products.  We raised our sweet corn prices really good last
year and still sold out every market so we may be able to keep raising
corn price even though there are lots of street vendor sitting on street
corners giving it away for $3 a doz.
