        1. re: howchow

          Saturday and Wednesday but I was completely underwhelmed with their truffles. Totally tasteless, watery. Should've expected as such since they were too affordable for a good size chunk but way too expensive for what it was.

      2. bay cities has white and black truffles

        1. There are two mushroom stands at the Hollywood Farmer's Market on Sunday mornings (across from Amoeba Records.) The lady closer to Sunset has both Italian and Oregon truffles, although the Italian ones are extremely expensive as is to be expected. There's also a gentleman at the intersection where the produce forks into baked goods and cooked food. He has Oregon truffles that I've really liked and haven't found to be watery, they're reasonably priced, although, certainly a whole different animal from the Italian variety. Good luck!
