Dawn emailed me this morning…
Carrie, I’m looking for a price for zucchini from you. I use ALOT of zucchini and for years I have grown it all. This year we moved and nothing grew for me. So, what is the base price I am looking for in order to stock up? I have no clue. I see that zucchini is still at $.88-1.00/lb. Is that sale price? (ugh!) It drives me batty to know that I grew 30-40 large zucchini last year for .80 – now I might get one pound for .80.
I don’t recall any amazing zucchini sales this year – what happened?! Dawn’s right – it’s hovered around $.88-1.00 per pound, which is a pretty standard summertime price, and I just looked at some of the prices from last winter, and it seems we saw those same prices even in January.
What do you think? Will it go lower yet this summer? What types of zucchini prices have you seen at local farmers’ markets?
I made the fried zucchini strings above on a whim one night last week – they were yummy, but then again, what isn’t yummy when dipped in batter and fried?!
