Mushroom Market Information

By November 19, 2021 Produce Market Report

All mushroom vendors for What Chefs Want have experienced severe cuts in supply. We will see increased short orders and unpredictability in this commodity.

For domestic mushrooms:

Expect that supply will be available some days but not others. We will be subbing different sizes and different sized slices. Even with subs, there are times when mushrooms still will be short.

For exotic mushrooms: 

These may appear as out of stock more often than before.  Supply is affected because of shortages of necessary materials coming in from Asia.

If you buy crimini mushrooms and are willing to take white mushrooms as a substitute, please let us know.
These shorts and allocations come from lack of labor and lack of critical supply for Pennsylvania mushroom growers.

This situation may become worse and is not expected to subside until January or February 2022.
