Far West Fungi


The San Fransisco Mushroom Store, is located in Ferry Plaza at the end of Market Street.
We love anything mushroom and this place has a fantastic variety.  I picked up some truffle salt which is new for me.  We just ate some bok choy with a couple of dashes and I LOVE the subtle hint of truffle. 



Love this 'POP' Art on the painting

They have mushroom growing kits- which I would really like to try.
They sell inocculated spores in a sawdust block which you soak overnight.
They do not, in fact, grow under these adorable glass enclosures but rather in plastic bags.
Have you ever tried to grow your own mushrooms?

Jude said...

I love mushrooms (such a wonderful sign!)and also the idea of growing them yourself! But I also fear I couldn't bring myself to eat the fruits of my own gardening labor :) {Btw, can *finally* follow you, thanks to my computer doctor! :))

I just don't care for the texture of mushrooms, though my daughter loves them. I do however, like truffle oil so the salt I'm certain would be a big hit.

A whole store for mushrooms! How fantastic. I realize how far in the country I live - we have nothing even close to this around me.

May I say this;
Mushrooms are the cutest looking fungi! Japanese mushrooms are delish, I'm glad there is Japan Town in my city!

Claire Kiefer said...

Hahahaha hilarious!!! While I despise mushrooms, I love the Ferry Plaza and all the wonderful stands of produce and coffee and everything else they sell. I wish I liked mushies! I'm a vegetarian and they come in SO many veggie things, but I just can't do it. Ugh.

i wish i could grow anything... there is nothing that compares to home grown tomatoes or squash. Speaking of mushrooms, we're about to enjoy gniocchi (sp?) and watch Dexter... i have been looking forward ALL WORK DAY to an in-home date with my darling fiance and our pups :)

Oh, I love the mushroom store, although I've never tried growing my own-what an adventure!

Patricia G said...

I think it's incredible to have a shop devoted to fungi. Is it seasonal? Great to grow food, and graze your own crops - enjoy!

Phoenix said...

I love mushrooms! I think I love them because the rest of my family hates them so if they're in any dish, all the mushrooms end up on my plate. :) I don't think I trust myself enough to grow mushrooms, though...

bklyn76 said...

Pat Tillett said...

I love mushrooms. Not for the same reason I did many years ago, but I still love 'em!
I've never grown my own though...

heather yalin said...

I love mushrooms! And there are hardly any to choose from down here. Can't wait to go back to a world where there are mushroom, lots of em, and a variety! :)

Krystal said...

I know absolutely nothing about mushrooms, I need to visit this store!

Julia, the Thanksgiving Girl said...

Wow, I've never heard about a store devoted solely to mushrooms! This sounds fun! I adore mushrooms, so I'd def pay a visit! Mayeb one day :)

Clair said...

Wow- I would have enjoyed shopping
in this store. I really like mushrooms but have never seen such a variety in one place. Did you purchase a mushroom growing kit?
