From fungiasheville.com:

Asheville Fungi’s MUSHROOM CENTRAL is a sterile lab, spawn room, grow room and retail mycological supply store all in one.   Our philosophy is to utilize waste stream resources from local businesses to grow delectable mushrooms.  Such items include spent brewery and distillery grain, spent coffee grounds, used paper products, sawdust, and wood chips.  We will be opening soon at our new location at 16 Allen St. in Asheville, North Carolina.  We offer a wide variety of products for all of your mushroom growing needs, including colonized agar plates, liquid culture, grain spawn, sawdust spawn,  colonized, ready to fruit bulk substrate spawn in filter bags, and pre-innoculated  wooden dowels suitable for innoculating logs.  Our retail store offers anything and everything mushroom related including art, books, clothing, and an amazing selection of equipment and supplies for every level of cultivation.

Get ready for a mushroom market, Asheville. There’s more from the Carolina Epicurean blog hereMushroom Central & “Wild” Foods Market Coming to West Asheville

With Small Terrain just down the street, West Asheville is becoming back-to-nature central. With New Belgium greenways and ice cream. Love it.

Looks like a Kickstarter for the market is in the works.  Stay tuned!
