Cordele--High gas prices and dry weather are combining to force you to pay more for produce.
Growers at the State Farmers Market in Cordele say they've had to increase their prices as much as thirty percent just to stay in business.
Some say gas prices have prevented them from hauling as much produce to markets as they'd like.
Farmers also blame the weather for hurting their crops and driving prices up.
"Dry weather has cut us out of peas. That's one our main things this time of year, peas and butter beans. We just couldn't grow it," says farmer, M.L. Johnson.
To make a profit, many farmers at the Cordele Farmer's Market also say they're working longer hours.
