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

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

My wife and I just left the Mushroom Cap after spending a delightful 30 minutes with Kathi, the owner of the store. We learned all about the growing of mushrooms and were able to sample several of the dry mushrooms that she is producing. We highly recommend a visit to the store to see all the delightful things that are... More

We showed up after hours but the sign on the door said if the door was unlocked come on in. The owner was as nice as she could be. She talked to us at length about the mushrooms being grown in the area.
