Go to the market and ask 100 programmer's of the same skill set about their expected salaries and take an average of that rate.

or pay some statistics and research firm like Gartner for actual real time data.

there are many more such companies which do such kinda analysis.

Or visit freelancing websites and checkout the average hourly rates of projects requiring the skills you want to estimate rates for.

Or you could consult the "Wall Street Journal" of IT:

Note: This is the USA edition. Computerworld has a long history of doing regional editions, so if you're interested in some other country, there's a good chance that you'll find the local equivalent.

Side point -- and hopefully not a hijack.

The concept of "market rate" assumes that developers are a commodity -- which I guess, in the consulting business, is supposed to be that way. However, in my opinion, with a good network (to the point that you regard them as friends), you can be far from commodity. Your friends knows your skills. Your friends works well with you. There is some loyality in the relationship. And hence, market rate rarely applies.
