I moved here from ATL about a year ago and still haven't found a place to buy live crawfish or fresh exotic mushrooms (hedgehogs, black trumpets, chantrelles, morels, etc...) Any suggestions?

      Spain Family Farms Grows unbelievable shitakes. You can find them at the Moore Square Market. I think.

          Contact the folks at the NC Crawfish Grower's Assoc. They should be able to direct you to someone that sells them. A road trip might be required.
