The Mushroom Cap featuring Fresh Mushrooms, Gourmet Mushroom Food Products,...

The Mushroom Cap featuring Fresh Mushrooms, Gourmet Mushroom Food Products, Gifts, Souvenirs, Collectibles and more.......See the original mushroom museum pieces from Phillips Mushroom Museum and/or watch a 13 minute video about the mushroom industry, Is Kennett Square really the Mushroom Capital of the World? Mushroom Festival Headquarters is here too! We eat, live and breathe mushrooms here and have fun all the while...........Tasting Snack 'n Shrooms(R) (a product developed at The Mushroom Cap) or Black Truffle w/ Olive Oil or Porcini & Rosemary flavored potato chips is a must.................Anyone for mushroom mustard? We are a stop on the Taste Kennett Food Tours on Sundays (beginning April 19th this year) too. Almost forgot to mention......The best kept secret "under" The Mushroom Cap is The Growing Tree Toy Shop. Hope to see you soon!

Stopped at the Mushroom Cap during our visit to Kennett Square to purchase mushrooms. We arrived right at closing time but they were very friendly and happy to help. Very cute shop. Sampled the mushroom chips which were great. The mushrooms we purchased was wonderful. If you are looking to purchase mushrooms, I highly recommend The Mushroom Cap.

Kennett Square has a quaint downtown village with many small shops owned and run by the locals, who are very nice and friendly. Loved visiting Artworks Art Gallery, and also My Polished nail salon right next door. Very welcoming.

Everything and anything "mushroom". And, they have it, and for "kids" of all ages. They also have fresh mushrooms to purchase, of many types, and of all sizes. They have an interesting visual/tutorial on how mushrooms are grown. Informative and fun, really worth the "STOP" to see "everything about mushrooms"!! A "MUST SEE" for sure!!

A charming little shop with more mushroom "stuff" than you can imagine. From food to decorative and anything in between.

This is a little hole-in-the-wall shop that is all about mushrooms. They sell actual mushrooms, but most of the merchandise is non-food. They have shirts and other clothing, cookbooks, decorations, knick-knacks, etc. There is an exhibit in that back that used to be in the Mushroom Museum, now defunct, that shows how mushrooms are grown commercially. Interesting. The owner heads... More

During the holidays, you never know what shops are open between 5 and 6 p.m., but the lights are on here! Was looking for dried mushrooms for a Polish soup, and the owner knew just what was needed--porcinis. Soup was good, great shop.

I love the Mushroom Cap. They have so many random mushroom trinkets and souvenirs. Admittedly it seems a bit touristy, but I am a tourist after all! The fresh mushrooms are so much better than what you get at the grocery store and they keep so nicely in the refrigerator - much longer than I would have expected. They have... More
