For those of you who collect and sell pollen, or for those of you who just consume pollen, what are the going prices in your area, or Country?

Dried.  Screened.  Cleaned of debris by good eyes and tiny vacuum tubes.  For human consumption. Sold by weight at 4 times the price of honey. 
For unprocessed raw pollen and screened fines, not for human, for animals. Sold by weight at 2x the price of honey.
Price is tied to honey.  Honey up, pollen up.  Honey down, pollen down.
The bees will spend the next 4 days undoing all of the wrongs that the beekeeper just did to them.

Blue Ridge Honey Co. is selling 7 oz. of pollen for $10.95.  I've seen it a little cheaper from another company which I'm unfamiliar with at Wal-Mart. 
I come from under the hill, and under the hills and over the hills my paths led.  And through the air, I am she that walks unseen.

That puts it at about $25 per pound from that source in you area. I paid $20 per pound about 3 years ago from a local beekeeper in my area....

I have seen plenty of honey for sale at farmers markets but have never noticed pollen for sale at a farmers market, have any of you?

    At  Farmers's markets and county fairs... 99% of time I was the only one selling pollen... I used to put my pollen into  Classic honey jar... I believe it's 4 oz in weight of pollen .. I sold one pound of honey or 4 oz of pollen for the same price.. At the time I left the USA it was $15..  If you'd like a location North central Massachusetts.. About 20 miles East of the Connecticut river...
