A new high for turkey breast

I'm wondering what CHers are paying for turkey and turkey parts.
Around here whole frozen turkeys come on sale for about a dollar a pound in the 'Box' stores.
That makes them a pretty good value considering what can be done with them.
Last week I think I saw the highest price for turkey ever.
Picture a 6"x8" white styrofoam tray. The kind that would hold about six frozen chicken wings.
Now you're at the local farmers market. Some one is selling frozen 'turkey parts'. On one of these trays is a frozen 'free grange' (non-organic/ non-'Heritage) turkey breast. It barely fits the little tray but it does fit it. Price? $52.95!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I asked the vendor if the price was a 'mis-print'. He looked at the price and said:"No, that's the right price but I can do a little better than that as long as my wife isn't looking".
