Best selection of wild mushrooms in the east bay?

So I know that Whole Foods and Berkeley Bowl are great resources for wild mushrooms, but I am wondering if anyone has any other good spots for hunting down wild mushrooms (any Variety)? Thanks.

    Have you tried Monterey Market? They have a good selection and great prices.

      Solano Mushroom Farm has an excellent selection of wild foraged mushroom, as well as some cultivated varieties. They sell out of farmers' markets, and are usually at the Berkeley Tuesday and Saturday markets. Availability is seasonal, of course, but over the years I've purchased delicious chantrelles, porcinis, matsutakes, and morels from them.
