Find the Magic in Mushrooms!

This week at Oliver’s, we are taking a deep dive into the delicious, nutritious, and beneficial world of our favorite fungi, mushrooms!

From 25% off our favorite local gourmet varieties from Mycopia, all the way to discovering new and innovative mushroom-based items throughout our store, we are ready to share some delicious and tasty magic this week at all four Sonoma County Oliver’s Market locations.

Note: All quoted prices and sales are in effect through January 24, 2023.

Culinary Mushrooms

First, let’s start with our very special 25% savings on all Local Organic Mycopia Mushrooms! Get ready for delicious days in your future as you enjoy Maitakes, Trumpet Royale, Alba Clamshell and Oyster mushrooms from this top quality, world class purveyor.

In case you are not already familiar, founded in Sebastopol, CA in 1977, Gourmet Mushrooms was the first company to commercially grow Shiitake in the US. Today, under the Mycopia Specialty Mushrooms brand, they grow Alba Clamshell, Brown Clamshell, Trumpet Royale, Forest Nameko, Velvet Pioppini, Nebrodini Bianco and Maitake Frondosa. They hand harvest and hand pack thousands of pounds of organic/kosher mushrooms every week – fresh from the farm to America’s finest restaurants and kitchens.

Maximum Mushroom Enjoyment

Let us count the ways to enjoy these local gems. We have some great ideas for you! How about   Pulled Maitake Mushroom Sliders, a recipe developed by Dillon Bean, Cotati Assistant Store Director. Other delicious recipes this week include Seared Trumpet Mushrooms with Garlic and Thyme, Wild Mushroom Risotto, Gourmet Mushroom Lasagna, and Traditional Szechuan Stir-Fried Mushrooms. And remember, if all of this is too much, a simple saute with butter, salt and pepper is really all that’s needed to enjoy these mushrooms on their own, or topping whatever you choose!

A Storewide Celebration

Along with their usual home in the Produce department, you can find mushrooms in coffee, tea, protein bars, powders, and even dietary supplements. While researchers have found evidence of mushrooms in the human diet dating as far back as the Stone Age, this super food seems to be enjoying a renaissance. So, why are mushrooms in the spotlight? Newer research indicates that some types of mushrooms could play a role in enhancing immunity, improving gut health, helping to lower blood pressure, and they may even help boost brain health! So, whether you are a mycophile, or just myco-curious, we invite you to explore the flavor and possible health benefits of these delicious fungi this week at Oliver’s.
