That's my market and pricing as well.

I sell by the bag/basket instead of by weight, but since most of the people here are required by religious edict to grow gardens, and since they give away their vegetables to each other, and since most everybody is poor, nothing is worth anything.

The local farm stands in northern Utah sell tomatoes for as low as 38 cents per pound during peak tomato season. (In bushel quantities.) I'm willing to let bulk quantities go for 50 cents per pound, but not any less than that.
