What’s coming up at the Saucon Valley Farmers’ Market this weekend? One thing you can expect to find there every weekend are delicious and exotic mushrooms, purveyed by Mainly Mushrooms LLC of Doylestown.
Mainly Mushrooms is a veteran vendor at the market, and as such as grown a loyal clientele for their wild-foraged mushrooms and greens, cultivated exotic mushrooms, medicinal mushrooms, dried wild mushrooms, kaffir lime leaves and vanilla beans.
You’ll also find truffle oils, European, and even domestic truffles in season at their stall.
Mushrooms are a delicacy that can be enjoyed on their own or as an ingredient in fine cuisine. Many quiches, salads, sautes incorporate them into their flavor profiles, so if you’re interested in trying to cook with mushrooms be sure to ask for tips and ideas.
Fun Fact: Did you know that Kennett Square, Pa., is the “Mushroom Capital of the World?” It acquired the title by being a major production area for mushroom farmers. In fact, nearly two-thirds of mushrooms consumed in the U.S. are grown there.
Before or after you visit Mainly Mushrooms, be sure to take a look around, because there’s always lots to see, do, hear–and buy–at the Saucon Valley Farmers’ Market.
