The Farmers Federation's monthly survey showed that the cost of 20 market basket items averaged at $53.56, that's up 70 cents from August.
The federation said strong international demand and higher production costs were to blame.
Pork and egg prices were up while produce, beef, and milk cost less.
The statewide survey was conducted the first week of September.
