Pricing at the Market

Pricing at the Market

Guest Blogger – Lisa Wedin – Univ of Alaska Fairbanks Cooperative Extension Service

One of the most important things vendors at a market can do is to have good labeling of their product with clear prices. If you are selling an unfamiliar product then show suggested uses of the product or have recipe cards.

Tips:

• Post prices for all your products
• Post units of products
• Describe product or suggested uses
• Have a good scale available if selling by weight
