Groceries in Shelby County and across Kentucky are costing slightly more after the first quarter of 2013, although that increase is significantly less than the national trend.

A review of 40 basic grocery items by the Kentucky Farm Bureau’s Marketbasket Survey showed a total price of $116.27, which was 74 cents – or .6 of a percent – higher than in December.

Marketbasket surveys the items quarterly 33 cities across the state, including Shelbyville. The results are compared to similar studies that the organization does across the nation.
