wild mushroom source

The only source[s] I found were in Mexico City markets-darn! As an example, oyster 'rooms available here are commercial and tasteless,not at all what I used to forage in the wild. Can someone send me some sun or oven dried varieties-por favor. Of course I  will pay. Commercial champignon 'rooms are the only ones worth buying locally.

Abastos in GDL will have many different types available. The market is many square blocks so it will take searching.

When I did my research they only had commercial. The vendor foragers were only in 1 or 2 markets in Mex city and none in Quadalajara.

Do you have access to anything like this in Morelia?

I took that photo in Mexico City, last year or the year before.  Sorry, I meant to post that along with the photo.

Yes, during the rainy season--which is just ending here in this part of Michoacán--there are women who forage for mushrooms in the wooded areas around Pátzcuaro.  In the market there, I find heaps of beautiful chanterelles and a couple of other varieties of mushrooms.  And then *poof*, the rains end and so do the mushrooms, until the next year.  

These are some I bought over there:

I am soooo envious! Would you be so kind as to dry some and send them to me. I will pay of course.

I have some dried Shitake mushrooms that I would be happy to give you.  I am in Texas at the moment but will return to Ajijic Nov 10th.  PM me so we can connect.

Thanks for the offer but I am lusting for native Mexican wild picked mushrooms as per the fotos I posted.
