Dave Garretson of Beechwood Orchard, who sells at Headhouse Square, has changed his pricing system. Until this week, he priced his fruit by the pint or quart. It was always good value, but you had to take it home and weigh it out to get a good comparison with other vendors.
Starting today he switched to strict by-the-pound pricing. His apples were $2/pound, pretty much in line with other vendors.
And he's still got Cox Orange Pippins.
Dave's only fear is that he's going to have to restrain himself when picky customers threaten to bruise the fruit next peach season.
