WALKER COUNTY, Ala. (WIAT) -- Jeremy Grey, President of the Walker County Farmers Market, says squash and okra crops are going to suffer the most from this nonstop rain the area has had in recent days.
Grey reports 10-12 inches this month so far on his farm which is located in Jasper along Bennett Road.
The farm had eight inches alone on July 4th.
He says yields will be half of what they were in 2012, making it hard for consumers to find okra and squash at farmers markets, and it will be a lot more expensive at the grocery store.
Most farmers at the farmers market who typically bring in five to six bushels a week are only producing one bushel because of the wet weather.
Grey says 20 gallons of squash a week is typical, but lately he's producing 7 gallons a week.
In general, Grey says farmers are seeing about 1/3 of what they produced in 2012.
For farmers who planted in low-lying areas, their entire crops have been wiped out.
Despite the damage caused by the wet weather, Grey says vegetables like tomatoes and peppers are doing well.
The Walker County Farmer's Market is open every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday.
