An Online Farmers Market
I was talking with some co workers about the “Old days” of the canna biz. I was telling them about the farmers markets they had every week, bi weekly or monthly. Farmers would buy space and a table. They would bring bags and a scale. That’s about it. No frills and thrills. Back then, the market was fairly standardized. If you wanted to know what your competitor is selling an ounce for, it was as simple as walking down the isle and looking at the posted price. Before they took the marketplace away, there was a pretty standard pricing model. The reason I believe the standard pricing worked, was that all farms had complete transparency.
When I started calling farms this summer and asking about their inventory, I found that some were not getting as much as they could on the wholesale market and some were getting way over what the average asking price was. No one was talking, and price discrepancies were crazy. I thought, if they only had a farmers market to all get on the same page. Then the obvious hit me, that’s what the Kush Marketplace is already doing. The more producers and buyers come onto the platform, the more standardized the pricing becomes. Kush never sets any pricing for anyone. We can give our educated opinion on prices and we frequently do through our market analysis, but in the end sellers pick their own asking prices and buyers make their own offers.
