The owner and her husband went out of their way to inform and entertain 34 students about the mushroom industry around Kennett Square. If you want to learn or purchase anything related to the vast differences between mushroom varieties, nutritional makeup, and how they are grown, I highly recommend this shop.

We stopped at Kennett Square on our way to West Chester and found this gem of an establishment. A delightful shop filled with all things mushroom- so perfect once we learned that Kennett Square is the "Mushroom Capital of the World". And in the back of the shop is a lovely section of mushroom artifacts & a display on the... More

My husband, son, and I were excited to find out how close we were to the "mushroom capital of the world." Kennett Square is a cute little town, and The Mushroom Cap is a quaint little store offering so many things mushroom. We settled for the chop sauce, while our son had to have a little wooden mushroom to remember... More

Mushrooms, mushrooms & mushrooms. Kathy knows her product and is forthcoming with all sorts of advice. We purchased several kinds of dried mushrooms and some specialty mushroom mustard, all of which we continue to enjoy immensely.

Stopped in here today and picked up a fantastic variety of fresh mushrooms. This is a must-do for mycophiles passing through the mushroom capital of the world. Prices were much cheaper than grocery store, and of course, didn't waste time/freshness to get sent out and packed from grower. Lots of other mushroom products, but for me the back cooler was...
