The Mushroom Cap featuring Fresh Mushrooms, Gourmet Mushroom Food Products, Gifts, Souvenirs, Collectibles and more.......See the original mushroom museum pieces from Phillips Mushroom Museum and/or watch a 13 minute video about the mushroom industry, Is Kennett Square really the Mushroom Capital of the World? Mushroom Festival Headquarters is here too! We eat, live and breathe mushrooms here and have fun all the while...........Tasting Snack 'n Shrooms(R) (a product developed at The Mushroom Cap) or Black Truffle w/ Olive Oil or Porcini & Rosemary flavored potato chips is a must.................Anyone for mushroom mustard? We are a stop on the Taste Kennett Food Tours on Sundays (beginning April 19th this year) too. Almost forgot to mention......The best kept secret "under" The Mushroom Cap is The Growing Tree Toy Shop. Hope to see you soon!

Stopped off here just as they were closing. We called the shop, the shop keeper was super; she agreed to stay open for us. Shop is loaded with all kinds of mushroom stuff. Fun place, maybe a bit kitschy but definitely worth a visit.

I found this cute little shop and town via trip advisor! I do a lot of tag along travel when my husband travels for business, so I try to find interesting things wherever I go. This popped up as a place to visit in the surrounding area. I am so glad I decided to go check this out! The town... More

I never knew there was so much to know about mushrooms. Very different than any other gardening. Lots of tasty chips. Shrooms (dried mushroom chips) are great, especially on salads. I never knew mushrooms were such an important PA product.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We pride ourselves on educating the public about mushrooms.................so many people visit having no idea that PA's #1 cash crop is Mushrooms. It's even better educating PA residents. Come back for Mushroom Festival in September. It's a lot of fun! More

It is a great place got tourists but we in the know are aware that it is rather expensive so we locals buy our mushrooms at Rockee's in Lincoln University for about one third of what they cost at the Mushroom Cap- all sorts of exotics there and the staff is very friendly. It is just a tiny little mushroom... More

At the end of our visit, the shop owner took our picture with our brother and sister-in-law under the sign for Kennett Square sign in the shop. Once taken, she will email it to all of us.

What a cute shop and delightful staff!! We got 3 pounds of fresh mushrooms there, which the staff member had packed in advance very carefully for us, as we told her we were not heading back home for 24 hours. The mushrooms were in great shape when we used them 48 hours later to make a large batch of mushroom... More

Kennett Square is the mushroom capital and of course there has to be a store!!! And it's wonderful. The owner is delightful and the trinkets are both amusing and fun. Visit this store if in PA
