Produce Marketing

The truth is you don't make any money growing vegetables.  To make money  you have to sell the vegetables.  At least 80% of a commercial aquaponic farm business has basically nothing to do with aquaponics.  So instead of talking about commercial aquaponics, I want this group to be about selling produce.

Rick,

So what would you say is the best varieties to grow for the grocery market?  The reason I ask is that my produce is being sold to the only grocery store in town.

Great topic TCLynx.

When I go to my local farmers market in San Antonio and Austin and look at the lettuce the ( AP farmers) are selling, it is under size and many times wilted. I have been a consultant on Organic produce for 4 yrs for a large grocery chain. I can see how many of these grower fail, if it is too small or the variety is under preforming you can not expect big sales. Harvesting to soon will kill your current sales and your reputation.
