Farmer's markets are no longer good priced honey sources. In Colorado the honey is just as expensive as in the store. Local beekeepers if you can find them have good prices. Me I get mine from Madhava's. Current price in bulk is $1.90 a pound in a 42 pound bucket wholesale. I got their wholesale prices by letting them know that I make mead and dont resell it. I gave them a small bottle to prove it. They are out of Lyons, CO. between Longmont and Boulder. This is the least expensive honey I found. Now They only have Wildflower, Alfalpha, and clove honeys. But good prices and high quality, not your grocery store over filtered and over cooked honey. I like the robust alfalpha honey best. Incedently it is more not getting it wholesale. More like $2.50 a pound last I checked. honey is always going up.
