> I've been doing organic whole grain breads at our market for 10 years
now.  When I started a 50 lb bag of organic flour cost $18, the same bag
is now $38.
Prices Have to reflect your costs.  Do not try to compete for prices with
the supermarkets...it's impossible...The market shoppers are looking for
the artisan breads and are willing to pay you for your time.
My larger loaves are 2 lb. I'm selling for $4.75-5.75 depending on the
variety.  I do flavored herb croutons and seasoned bread crumbs with the
left overs.  I don't get rich but make a decent living....
                            Sora in Paradise where we finished a decent
woodshed just as the snows started.....all is
good.
