  1. I get mine at Treasure Isle. I know there's a suburban location but I think it's N. not W.

      I'm going to check out the new Trader Joe's grocery store that just opened in Glenview. If it's anything like the ones in LA, they may have chanterelles and other interesting ingredients. Stay tuned.

        go to the weekly farmers markets. also the saturday one in evanston. there is one vendor with fresh porcini, morels, everything.

        here is a link for the chicago downtown markets
