We have an unprecedented variety of mushrooms at River Market right now – Golden Chanterelles, Black Trumpet, Hedgehog, Yellowfoot, Maitake, King Oyster, Portobello, Shitake, Crimini.
The newer arrivals are coming from a local man named Mike Kempenich and his company The Gentleman Forager. He was an instructor for Minnesota’s Wild Mushroom Identification Certification course and founder of The Mikeology Store, a Minneapolis-based business that sells mushrooms to restaurants.
Our newest offering? Black Truffles! We’re taking orders for eighth-pound quantities in our produce department now, and each time we have a pound in total requests, we’ll place the order for the pound and call the people who requested them. These are one of the most sought after mushrooms on the planet, and you can order them at River Market
