Fruits & Vegetables Taking Bigger Food $ Bite

This Huffpost article reports that vegetable prices in Canada have risen 18.2% over the previous year, due in part to our falling Loonie. Fresh fruit prices also rose by over 12% year to year. Overall food prices were up 4%.

Lettuce, tomatoes, apples and oranges rose the most during the period showing increases of 17.9%, 11.9%, 16.6% and 11% respectively.

If you think your food dollar is not getting the 'bang for the buck' that it used to, it is not your imagination.
