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!

An interesting shop with everything focused on mushrooms. They had towels, books, soups, figurines, etc. all about mushrooms. There was a small display on mushroom growing, but it wasn't too informative. They also sell fresh mushroom. If you're visiting Kennett Square, it's worth stopping in.

Because if you do, you'll like the Mushroom Cap. Oh, what? 100 characters? Okay, this is more or less the main gift shop of Kennet Square, the Mushroom Capital of the World. As such it contains an absurd amount of mushroom-themed kitsch, from license plates...More

What a neat little shop, featuring all types of mushrooms, mushroom themed fun things and items you don't typically see in stores. Purchased some yummy dried-mushroom snacks!

The Mushroom Cap is a wonderful treasure of Kennett Square. They offer fresh mushrooms, many mushroom-related items, and Kennett Square souvenirs. A "must visit" store if you are visiting the Kennett Square area! Sales staff and owner are very helpful and friendly, too.

First, they have very helpful employees who are eager to answer questions and help you find what you're looking for. They have anything and everything mushroom including fresh. They also have a little history on mushroom growing and on the area.
