Melbourne's #1 Food Market

Celebrate with gourmet mushrooms

Why are gourmet mushrooms so special? Some of them are only available for a very short time-frame  Some are only imported in tiny amounts from a little village in France.  Some of them may be foraged locally by a lone farmer in the Australian countryside.

But, depending on the season, you’ll find chestnut, pine, slippery jacks, morels, enoki, king browns, baby king browns, pink oyster, shitake, white fungus and shimeji (to name a few) at Prahran Market and while they may be a little more than your everyday buttons or Swiss browns, you’ll only need a small quantity to make your dish extra special.

Think risottos, sauces, exotic stir fries or simply fried in quality butter for that special birthday breakfast.
