BOZEMAN - Some good economic news making its way in on Wednesday. Many grocery prices are going down in southwest Montana.
Twice a year and before some holidays, including Thanksgiving, the Farm Bureau sends out shoppers across the country.
The shoppers price staple food, including produce, eggs, milk and meat, including bacon.
This time, many prices across the country are on the rise, when here in our area, those same items cost less.
Janet Krob with the Montana Farm Bureau Federation said, "Our prices seem to be dropping especially with chicken and the potatoes."
A shopper, Marie McSpadden said, "I try really hard to buy organic or local when I can and I have noticed some of the prices dropping."
According to the Farm Bureau, Americans spend about 10 percent of their disposable income on food.
