Mushroom sales are booming across the country

Thursday, October 25, 2012

A new report from the California-based mushroom council shows sales are up by 3.3 percent this year compared to last year.

Ag officials say people are buying more mushrooms because of their nutritional benefits. Experts say health-conscious consumers are after the Vitamin D found in the mushrooms.

This year growers shipped almost 480-million pounds of mushrooms.
