I went to the Gresham farmers market June 5. I bought 3 three pound jars of meadowfoam honey for $13 each, and 1 three pound jar of fireweed honey. It has gone up a bit in the past couple of years, but $4.33 for a pound of specialty honey is pretty good. The jar of fireweed was the only one they had and it was the first week of the season so I was lucky I got there right at opening time.
6 pounds of generic clover honey is around $11 at costco.

sounds like a good source! not super cheap, but interesting honeys. fwiw, i'm pretty happy with the miller's honey purchase (bought a gallon of the wildflower...still fermenting)

They have a fairly wide selection, the two I mentioned are my favorites and the ones I concentrate on getting a good supply of.
I think it's a pretty good price compared to a lot of sources that charge 6, 7 and 8 dollars a pound (plus shipping).

There are a number of honey producers in Southern California - they are usually located in industrial areas, because they ship out the hives on trucks to wherever the crops are blooming - they provide pollination for the California almond crop in the Central Valley, for example. When they are filled with honey, they are trucked back to the factory for packaging. That is why the "local" honey comes from trucking hubs like Colton or Inglewood.
