matsutake mushrooms

Where can I buy matsutake mushrooms in the East Bay and/or SF? The number 1 premium quality ones are selling at the Ferry Building in SF for $65/lb when available. I got some at Berkeley Bowl a couple weeks ago. Now they have all but disappeared. They say that the mushrooms are now being shipped to Japan for their market. Anyone knows anything about the availability of these treasures in the Bay Area?

  1. Monterey Market is a possibility, but call first.

      They (MM) usually seem slightly cheaper than Berkeley Bowl but if one has it the other does, too.

        1. They're at BBW again, 18.50-22.50 lb
