According to the Dairy Farmers of Canada 2021 Milk Calendar...
Mushrooms are grown, harvested and delivered year round in Canada, so they're always in season! Store mushrooms in the fridge in a brown paper bag to absorb the edible fungus' natural moisture. Plastic can trap these fun guys' moisture inside which can result in slimy mushrooms.
Some of the most popular mushrooms varieties grown in Canada are White Button, Cremini, & Portobello. Specialty mushrooms like Shiitake, Oyster, King Oyster & Enoki mushrooms are all still on the rising trend in the food industry.
