Most people sell home-grown mushrooms at farmers markets or directly to restaurants and hotels. As of 2015, fresh mushrooms can sell from $3 to $7 per pound in the United States, while some dried mushrooms can go for $75 to $100 per pound.
Because fresh mushrooms do not last long, most people have to find local buyers. One starting point for selling mushrooms is local restaurants. Growers can talk directly to the chefs of upscale restaurants, who may want to buy local produce.
Another option is selling mushrooms in public markets. Many cities have farmers markets, co-ops, or health food stores that welcome fresh, local foods.
