Many of us have sold wild mushrooms to restaurants, to stores and at farmer’s markets. Now we must rethink this practice.

Currently, selling wild mushrooms picked from the wild is illegal in most places unless certain rules are followed.  The FDA Food Code now requires food to be able to be tracked to its place where it was collected.
