Fresh porcini mushrooms in Toronto?

I know mushrooms are in season, yet I haven't spotted these anywhere. Is anyone in Toronto selling fresh porcinis at this time of year? I've never tried them and would love to know a supplier.

    1. There is a mushroom seller in the north market at teh St. Lawrence market. She sells local farmed and wild mushrooms, but she also goes to the terminal and brings in other stuff. She had Porcini's last fall. She also had Morels and Chanterelles in season. And, she's the only place I've ever been lucky enough to find a puff ball for sale in the early spring.

      1. A bit out of the way, but I'll check them out.

        Anywhere else?

        1. I know who you're talking about, I bought some morels from her a while ago. I try to go to St Lawrence every week so I'll definitely keep checking in with her. Thanks!

          1. Pusateri's often carries them, too. Cheese Boutique didn't have them yesterday, but they did have some lobster, gypsy and butter mushrooms. Mmm, mushroom risotto!
