Where can I find the best selection of fresh mushrooms around the Costa Mesa/Newport area? Specifically morels and oyster.

    Yes, anywhere in Orange County - I am looking for morels!

      I can't help you with morels, but there's a vendor at the Irvine market that sells oyster mushrooms. Two, actually -- one is the mushroom vendor along the "main drag" of the market and the other is the Asian vegetable vendor closest to In-N-Out, who also has black and blue trumpets and enoki.

        I used to get fresh morels and porcini in the Bay Area quite regularly, and they made great eating. I'd be extremely interested to find either variety anywhere in Southern California.
