wild mushrooms in Sydney?

I just yesterday found some pine mushrooms at the produce store on Glebe Pt Rd, and I was wondering if there are any other places people buy foraged/wild mushrooms in Sydney.

  1. ive been mushrooming for pine mushrooms, slippery jacks and grey ghosts but it was out near the Blue Mountains. I can't remember where exactly but im pretty sure its near a town called Oberon (spelling??) about a 3 hour drive, there are plenty of people that head out there when the season is right. Ill ask a friend the exact details and any other spots he knows of and get back to you.

    1. re: brunelleschi

      I was hoping to buy them rather than go out myself and collect them. good to know the names slippery jacks and grey ghosts.

    2. Fratelli Fresh or Simon Johnson's might be able to help you out?

      1. there is a mushroom vendor at the markets at fox studios on wednesdays and saturdays.
