Quarterly food basket price drops, according to TFB's Grocery Price Watch survey

(WACO, Texas)--Texas shoppers slide into summer with savings as retail food prices continue to drop, according to the latest Texas Farm Bureau (TFB) Grocery Price Watch survey.

The second quarter survey results recorded a total balance of $45.94 for a 16-staple item basket, including produce, meat, grain and dairy products. It's a one percent decrease from last quarter and a 3.54 percent decrease compared to this time last year.

"It was a small drop in prices, but Texas families have continued to notice savings at the cash register this year," TFB President Russell Boening said.
