Far West Fungi is a truly unique shop in the Ferry Building. The shop specializes in cultivated and wild mushrooms, fresh seasonal truffles and unusual forest products. The shelves are filled with high quality dried mushrooms, truffle salts, oils, pates, and mustard. You will also find mushroom-related cookbooks, posters and foraging books. One of the store’s most sought after items are Mini-Farms to grow your own mushrooms, straight from the farm to your home. For those wanting to learn more about cooking with these products, manager Ian Garrone and his staff are always ready to introduce and educate shoppers to the wonderful tastes of culinary, exotic and medicinal mushrooms.
This shop is the principal outlet of the Garrone family’s mushroom farm located in Moss Landing, California. John and Toby Garrone, with the help of their four boys, have provided cultivated mushrooms to local farmers’ markets for over 25 years. The Garrone family strives to cultivate a wide array of the highest quality CCOF certified organic mushrooms grown on all natural hardwood sawdust and rice bran nutrients.
Year-round, Far West Fungi has one of the largest selection of mushrooms available. Since wild mushrooms are seasonal, the varieties of mushrooms and fresh truffles are always changing. Far West Fungi also has an ever-changing variety of local, artisan-based, unique mushroom products. This specialized family store has something for everyone, novice to enthusiast, no matter the occasion.
