ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

We could soon see the impact of a major drought in California.

Tommy McDowell has sold produce in Albany for more than 30-years.

His store, Tommy Mc's, sells Tuscan Kale, Green Leaf Lettuce and Iceberg Lettuce from California.

He says he's still able to get quality produce at reasonable prices, but that could change in a few months.

"It seems like the prices to everything go up. I'm sure that we won't see prices as reasonable as we once did see years ago, but like I said years ago I also remember seeing it a lot higher than it is now. It's really a day to day thing and mother nature and the weather," said Tommy McDowell owner of Tommy Mc's Produce Store.

McDowell says price fluctuations are common for many kinds of produce.
