Mycelium Express

If you have been to any of our markets, you will recognize the two masterminds behind Mycelium Express. Rickey and Mike have been growing mushrooms since September of 2018 and have been a beloved part of our market since the Summer of 2019. Rickey and Mike cultivate a wide selection of mushrooms including Oyster, Shiitake, Portobello, Cremini, Lions’ Mane, Coral Tooth, and King Trumpet. They also carry wild foraged mushrooms like Golden Chanterelles and Morels when they are in season, so get them while you can! And not to mention, Rickey and Mike offer grow-at-home kits and specialty tinctures made from their mushrooms. If you haven’t met these “fun-guys”, you can find them every other Tuesday at the Uptown Market, Thursdays at the Mid-City Market, or on Sundays at our City Park Market.
