at a farmers market or local trade days/fair? 

I have a fig tree that went nuts and was giving us two large plastic easter buckets of figs a day for two weeks.  So, here I sit with a ton of tasty jam and am looking into selling at the trade days that happens one weekend a month here in town.  I've tried searching online for good prices but I can't get a good feel from that.  So I thought I'd come ask here and see if any of you might have an opinion to share. :)  They are 8 oz jars.. strawberry fig, Apple fig, and Blackberry fig (if that matters).   

So what would you pay or have you payed for a jar of really tasty home made jam?  And, for those that have bought at a local event.. what was the one thing that helped make the decision to buy?  Was it price, display or the taste test?  If your willing to give me your opinion, I'm willing to listen.

Thanks guys!

I did do some looking around locally, but then life sorta exploded on me. At one local consignment shop I found that they were selling jars of jam and pickled stuff for $7 for 8ozs. But after a second inspection, they appeared to be commercial mimicking home canned. Not good Mrs. Renting that Consignment booth! My next stop was a true farmers market west of me, but life had other plans and I've been stuck at home since. Trying to find this info on the internet is like trying to pull teeth. Most of the stuff I find is years old. That is when I decided to hit here in the hopes that maybe some of you were "shoppers".

I did do some cute labels. I'm a digital scrapbooker, so it was one of the first things that I knew I had to do when I knew I'd be selling.



I've still got to figure up all my cost. I wasn't thinking about selling when all this started, just about getting the figs done. We are looking at it totally differently now. I've got a whole second crop still sitting out there on the tree too!
