Inflation has caused Lincoln farmers market vendors to be more aware of their prices

LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – With inflation rising by 6.3% in the past year, some vendors at Lincoln’s Sunday Farmer’s Market are conscious of their prices.

Shadow Brooks Farm & Dutch Girl Creamery have been vendors at the farmer’s market ever since it began back in 2005.

But over the past year, inflation has caused vendors to reevaluate their prices. Something that vendors, like the owner of Shadow Brooks and Dutch Girl’s, Charuth van Beuzekom have been cautious about.

“I still think people are coming to shop and people always need to eat so, we just need to make sure to charge a price that’s fair for both of us,” van Beuzekom said. 

Other vendors, like Walnut Range Farms, say it’s important for them to keep their prices in order to help out their customers.

Despite some slight price increases, customers are still eager to shop local and understand that inflation is something we’re all dealing with.

For Shadow Brook Farm & Dutch Girl Creamery, they say business has been good to them and they hope to see more at the market each Sunday.
