Wholesale Buying and Selling Through Produce Auctions (Oxford, PA)

June 14, 2022 @ 8:00 am - 10:00 am

Free

Wholesale produce auctions are advantageous for wholesale buyers and growers alike. Participating can seem daunting to a first-timer, but we will show you how to successfully buy and sell at the auction. During Wholesale Buying and Selling Through Produce Auctions, join us for a tour of the auction facility; an informational session on the nuts and bolts of buying and selling at the auction; and a live demonstration led by an auctioneer.

The produce auction is a staple of Pennsylvania’s produce marketplace and a win-win for farmers and buyers alike. Auctions give buyers a front row seat to the beauty and abundance of locally-grown food and flowers throughout the season, from specialty items to staple seasonal crops like corn and tomatoes. The live-bidding format puts buyers in the driver’s seat, letting them see products (and judge quality) for themselves and determine the price and volume that suits their needs. Auctions give growers an efficient way to sell their goods, meaning less time spent marketing and managing orders and more time left for farming.

Participants are welcome to stay and participate in the auction. Cash and check are accepted forms of payment at the auction. Some auctions take credit cards.

This workshop is supported by a Specialty Crop Block Grant from the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture.

This event is being offered at no charge to participants.

Space is limited – preregistration is recommended!
