USDA updates price of blackberries daily

Response to Blackberries price needed


The USDA Agriculture Marketing Service website updates market prices daily for blackberries sold in several major US cities. Prices range from $6-42 for flats holding 12 containers. Individual containers range in size from 5.6 ounce cups to 1 pint baskets. I' m sure these prices are for commercially grown berries. Considering most of our local berries would be considered organic and all natural grown in the wild, they shoud command a much higher price. Even more so if the hand picked berries have been allowed to vine ripen and been given the time for Japanese beetles and other hungry creatures to enjoy their fair share in a pesticide free and tick infested environment.
