Local Source for Fresh Morels VA/MD/DC ?

      Indoor cultivation is considered very tricky, described here:

      1. There's a woman who comes from Pennsylvania who sells organic mushrooms at the Arlington Farmers Market (Saturday mornings at the Courthouse). She had morels several months ago, but not the last time I was there.
