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.

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

We wandered into The Mushroom Cap and spent a fun half hour learning about the the process of mushroom farming and mushrooms in general. You can buy so many different types of mushroom products - dried and fresh, soups, pastas,... 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
