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!

We stopped in here while walking around downtown. The store is very cute, with a brief exhibit on mushrooms in the local area. Very nice staff.

Some lovely gifts to be had here, and if you like mushrooms there are some delicious and unique food items.

We actually went to the mushroom drop on New Years Eve. Thought it would be interesting. It was extremely cold and we snuck into this store to warm up. It is open late to accommodate those who attend the yearly event. The sold a lot of "mushroom-themed" merchandise including the large coffee mug we bought as a gift. If you... More

With mushrooms being so important to the local economy, this place serves as a nice stepping off point to the economy and goods of the area. Worth dropping by to see the clever things that can be done with mushrooms.

What a quirky place-- very friendly--quirky history about mushroom growing-- lots of stuff to buy mushroom oriented. They have fresh mushrooms--many varieties-- I picked four and they weighed them and boxed them to go. Very nice. Got an apron that said Shitake Happens. Ha!

This is a small place but it is packed full of mushroom "stuff". If you are looking for a gift for a mushroom lover, you will definitely find it here. The little main street on which it is located has lots of small shops and boutique restaurants and cafes so its worth a stop if you also like to walk... More

I myself have not visit it, but I soon will. I do love mushrooms on just about anything even lobster. My wife visit there/here back in the 80's and I'm sure nothing much changed only up dated. Sorry that I couldn't give a more definitive explanation.

I came in right before closing and was welcomed in! The owner was lovely and very informative. Great selection of all things mushroom. I picked up a soup mix that I'm excited to try. I would certainly go back. It's on a street with a number of boutiques. Go!
