HARRISONBURG, Va.--- Neighbors may have to pay extra for beef when they go to the grocery store. Meat markets in our area have noticed the change and even restaurants are having to adjust.

El Primo Meat Market owner Veronica Paniagua said in just three weeks, some cuts of beef have increased up to $1.70 per pound. Therefore, she has not bought as much beef as before as more people are shying away from paying full price.

"They are looking for other options, they are buying less quantity or now they are double thinking and they go for pork or chicken," said Paniagua.

Customer Marcel Burrough has not noticed the change but if it keeps increasing he may buy other meats.

"If it keeps jumping at that rate a couple more weeks and I would have to switch," said Burrough.

Some local restaurants have adjusted their prices. At Local Chop and Grill House in Harrisonburg some cuts of meat have increased $1 from last year. However, the restaurant is trying to cut on other costs to keep prices down.
