How much will a market buy my home-made bread for?
I am trying to figure out how much a market will buy sourdough for. I bake at home, have all of the necessary licenses/registrations, and am ready to start my business. In NY, home processors are only allowed to sell their goods wholesale or retail, through someone else's store. So that is my plan.
I contacted a few local markets and offered to bring them a sample of my bread; 4 are interested, so tomorrow I will bring my bread to them and see if they're interested. I just have no idea what price to offer per loaf... artisan breads go for around $10/loaf in my area, but mine is organic (will they care?) My cost per loaf is currently $0.90, but I'm baking a small quantity at home so this number will change with time.
I'm hoping someone may have a $# in mind... or ratio of what the market sells a loaf for and what I would supply the loaf for? Thank you in advance!
