If you want to add more mushies to your order or register for the next release of mushies if we’ve sold out let us know.
Our oyster mushrooms are best stored in a Tupperware container with the lid ajar for air flow. Alternatively they can be placed on a plate with a damp tea towel on top. Please keep inside the fridge. They should last for 5 days or even more if stored well. They may start to develop a white furry growth – this is nothing to worry about and is in fact the mycelium growing. Please do not eat them if they are soft and mushy, begin to smell or start to go mouldy. Oyster mushrooms should be cooked before eating. Frying them up and whacking them on toast is our all time favourite way to eat them. We are sure that you will have no problems storing these tasty morsels.
About the farmers:
Sporadical City Mushrooms kicked off in a carport at our little home in Carlton where I live with my two kids. Now a part of the Mushroom Co-Farm in Alphington we continue to grow delicious seasonal oyster mushrooms chemical free on agricultural waste using recycled buckets instead of plastic bags. Enjoyed unbelievably fresh at Melbourne’s best restaurants and local households, these scrumptious beauties are full of truly amazing goodness.
The Mushroomery is a little urban mushroom farm located in the inner Melbourne city suburb of Alphington. The Mushroomery aims to localise the community food system and spread more understanding within the urban bubble on where food comes from and how it is grown. The Mushroomery hopes to bring more unique varieties of mushrooms to the local community and restaurants.
