The Mushroom Cap has been here before many of our other merchants; is representing a main staple in our area and a place to go when you come to Kennett Square! You go Kathy Lafferty!
Great read for those visiting The Mushroom Festival today. Kathi Lafferty of the The Mushroom Cap was honored yesterday by PA State Rep. Craig Williams for her past work and dedication to the Mushroom Festival.
Have you been in The Mushroom Cap recently? They've restocked these beautiful mugs and also have fresh foraged mushrooms for you to buy along with some adorable mushroom-themed gifts! Stop in to shop!

I have heard from several people about the Mushroom story in this publication.
Yesterday a woman walked in with this magazine so excited to arrive from Bonita Springs, FL.
She and her husband were planning a camping trip and chose to come North, specifically to The Mushroom Cap because of this article. Wow! She left with mushrooms for a recipe she found within the article and gave me her magazine!
Thank you Food & Wine!😊🍄

The Healthiest, Anti-Cancer Foods: G-BOMBS 04/27/2019

The Healthiest, Anti-Cancer Foods: G-BOMBS

If only I knew then what I know now......EAT MUSHROOMS AND LIVE LONGER......I've been researching alternative cures for cancer since my Dad's sister was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in 1977 at 46 years old...gone within 2 months. My Mom, one sister, their Aunt and a cousin all died from breast cancer. Am I or my daughters, my cousins doomed? I pray that we are not. Just recently a woman came into The Mushroom Cap who forages for mushrooms...she finds lots of Turkey Tail mushrooms (breast cancer fighter). She made the comment that "no one living in Kennett Square should be sick with cancer....all mushrooms have medicinal benefits". I eat fresh mushrooms often and take mushroom supplements everyday knowing the health benefits. I wanted to chat more but she had to go.....then last night a friend mentioned how mushrooms, along with other foods, stop the growth of cancer.......she is taking an integrative nutrition/medicine course. She told me about Dr. is what I found.

The Healthiest, Anti-Cancer Foods: G-BOMBS G-BOMBS defines the best anti-cancer, health-promoting foods, which help to prevent disease especially cancer, and promote health and longevity.

Sown in China, grown on high seas, ‘Product of USA’ mushrooms are killing American farms 01/30/2019

Sown in China, grown on high seas, ‘Product of USA’ mushrooms are killing American farms

Say NO to Chinese shiitake mushrooms! American consumers need to know that more likely than not, the shiitake mushrooms they are eating are grown on logs that are inoculated and produced in China. Most of the shiitake growers here in Chester County are growing Chinese shiitakes. Kennett Square shiitake mushrooms, product of the USA, are available daily at The Mushroom Cap.

Sown in China, grown on high seas, ‘Product of USA’ mushrooms are killing American farms A Kennett Square specialty mushroom grower declares bankruptcy and lays off dozens of workers. Gary Schroeder of Oakshire Farms says a loophole in law has allowed Chinese makers of shiitake mushroom logs to flood the market, driving him out of business.

Mushroom spawn king seeks China trade relief

I have been preaching about the Chinese Shiitake mushrooms to every consumer who ask to purchase shiitake mushrooms at The Mushroom Cap. We only sell Shiitake mushrooms that are produced on KSS Shiitake logs. Who wants to eat anything from China knowing that there have been issues with dog food as well as baby formula and milk that has come from China? To say they are American grown is definitely faking the public! Consumers have told us they smell like fish and that they have a very rubbery texture. Who knows what is in those logs? "I'm a Trump supporter, but I keep waiting for him to do something for me."


Today I had the privilege of meeting Mirko Reeh. He is a TV chef in Germany. His original plan was to be here for Mushroom Festival but that did not work out this year...maybe 2020. Thank you Will Swan from CCCVB and Mirko for stopping by! Fun visit! 10/30/2018

Are you eating enough mushrooms? The fungi is even healthier than originally thought

I do my best to educate folks every day........and I take Mushroom supplements too! The health benefits are amazing! Eat Mushrooms and Live Longer! A Penn State professor has found the mushrooms have even more health benefits than previously known. They can be excellent sources of four key dietary micronutrients that are all known to be important to healthy aging. 07/25/2018

Pennsylvania Mushroom Farmers Lead U.S. in Mushroom Production Last year, Pennsylvania farms produced more than 577 million pounds of white button mushrooms, which accounted for nearly $560 million in sales.
