Mushroom Guide

We have compiled and organized a lot of information, ranging from published scientific studies, recipes, and general information, such as what time of the year you may find them growing.  Click the mushroom you are interested and it will take you to that species landing page.

This page is a work in progress! only some of the mushroom pages have been created.

Disclaimer:  This page is not to be used for the sole identification of any mushroom or plant, and is intended to act as a guide for how to best utilize the mushrooms you may have picked up from us at the market. If you have foraged your own mushrooms,  please always practice safety, and always double check with multiple sources - preferably humans, not just books, before consuming any wild foods.
