STL - place to buy fresh exotic mushrooms?

I''m looking specifically for chanterelles but others are good too, I have no idea what's in season, and even Shop 'n Save has a few others - but are there any local sources?

  1. I would check out the local farmers' markets such as the markets in Soulard , Clayton, Tower Grove or Maplewood. Most are open on Saturday mornings and would be a good place to start.

      Well I would but would make sense...

    2. If you are looking for a mail order source, try Earthly Delights. Pros in St. L use Fresh Mushroom Farm. You could probably find the number through operator assistance. Joe (owner) is located south on 55. Dierbergs and Whole Foods also have a few fresh exotic mushrooms when avaiable.
