Produce Prices Going Up

Posted:
PALMYRA, Mo. (WGEM) -

You might notice some higher prices in the produce department of your local grocery store.

Store managers say they've been seeing veggies grown out west, like California, have risen in prices by around $2.

C&R manager Jeremy Snow says broccoli, head lettuce, and cauliflower, to name a few, are affected. He says this is thanks to a poor growing season and freezing temperatures.

He says to keep people buying, they try to make their produce as appealing as possible. 

"It does force you to pay more attention to the freshness of your product. Yes, people do buy less so of course you want them to buy good product and you want them to come back so you really have to make sure that the product on the shelf is up to par," he says.

Snow says they get new prices for produce every week, and hopes these current rates will drop in the next few weeks
