Lots of snow is good for mushroom consumption

Core Tip: A good year for snow in Utah has meant an equally good year for local mushrooms.
A good year for snow in Utah has meant an equally good year for local mushrooms. “Our demand for mushrooms has been really strong so far this year but then we’ve had a good snow year too,” says Brenda Barney, a wholesaler with Mountain View Mushrooms based in Fillmore, Ut. “And demand is really high right now because we’re in the height of the ski season and have a foodservice holiday going on.”

Supply looks tight
Mountain View grows four types of mushrooms indoors including portobello, oyster, white and crimini mushrooms indoors. And Barney says that supply of the mushrooms is equally tight. “It’s been that way for quite a while—although supply is actually better than it was around this time last year,” she says. “Some of the Canadian growers are doing better than they were last year.”

Looking ahead over the next few weeks, Barney sees little change coming until Easter. “Demand easily falls off after Easter and then gets slower until Labour Day,” she says. “It’ll be tight until then but that’s when it usually starts to slow up a little because the ski resorts start closing.”
