This video really hits home for me. It is amazing to see how much food is imported into Canada, even though we grow/farm those products right here.
One thing is for sure, Canadian mushrooms are grown fresh every day here in Canada. There is no seasonality, they are grown and picked 365 days a year.
One way to be sure you are purchasing Canadian mushrooms is to check the label or the bulk box to make sure that it says "Product of Canada."
If you cannot find Canadian products, ask! The most powerful thing you can do is request your grocery store buys local products. This movement starts with you!
So, eat real, eat local.
