Fresh chantrelles in Twin Cities?

I was wondering, when available, where's a good market that carries fresh chantrelles? There's a couple things I want to make with them, but am leery of using the dried ones.

    I often see them at Mississippi Market -- I shop at the Selby-Dale branch. if Minneapolis is more convenient for you, I'd bet the Wedge co-op would have them.

      I have seen them at the wedge, but they look pretty tired and beaten up most of the time and are stored under plastic wrap which is death for mushrooms.

        I don't think it's chanterelle season - they're probably at their best in the early fall. But, yeah, Mississippi Market and the Wedge are probably your best bets.

          When I visited the Mill City Farmers Market (the one sandwiched between the Guthrie and the Mill City Museum) back in the late summer/early fall, there was a man there who specialized in mushrooms. He had a huge variety and they all looked gorgeous. But, that was months ago. :) It won't help you now, or until that farmers market is open again, but he might be a year-round source if you knew how to get in touch with him in the off-season...

            Just curious, why are you leery of the dried ones? Seems like
            people have been using those for many years in Eastern Europe..
