Poner en una escala

How can we say that in English?
It means to try to value things according to their price, their quality etc...

If the term you are looking for is metaphoric, then to weigh may be the word you are looking for. For example, if you are about to make an important decision, you may want to weigh the options.
But if you want to find out how much you'll have to pay for the potatoes, you should put them on a scale, or weigh them.
