1. What is the difference between the shed report and the terminal report?
A Shed Report is a report that includes prices of specialty crop commodities sold under the Sheds at the South Carolina State Farmers Market which include in-state (South Carolina) and out-of-state sheds. Prices are differentiated by the commodities origin of which it was grown, variety, size, package and grade. Here is the Shed Report.
Terminal Reports are reports on prices for which specialty crop commodities are sold at U.S. City terminal markets at the wholesalers. Prices are differentiated by the commodities’ growing origin, variety, size, package and grade.
