  Can anyone out there tell me how I should present ramps at the farmers’ market and what I should charge for them?  I few years ago an old guy at our market was putting them in a little bunch of four or five and selling them for a dollar.  That seems a little expensive in a way but I would not charge less than that amount.

Sounds cheap to me; but they're hard to come by around here if you can find them at all. I don't have any on the place, and have never tried to establish them.

The only price I can find right now that has any on my list of pricing sites is Park Slope in New York City, and they're getting 12.37 a pound.
