Now is the perfect time to visit TRIESTE FUNGHI – When I first arrived to Trieste, I discovered the most surprising and magical little shop, Funghi Trieste. I don’t remember now if back then they also had the fruit and vegetable shop next door, but as I recall, in 2015 it was just a tiny little nook, maybe 20 x 10 square feet, just enough to house a refrigerated counter and some baskets and shelves overflowing with all types of  fresh and dried mushrooms.

Being the fall, the store was packed with product and customers lined up to get their haul of fragrant fungi. Among the choices were fat porcini, bright yellow finferli aka chanterelles, beautiful orange ovuli aka Caesar’s mushrooms as well as some nuggets of Istrian truffle goodness.

Trieste Funghi is a reliable source for fresh, fragrant and in season specimens. It is always best to call ahead to ask what’s in stock as inventory changes depending on the season and rainfall. But now, with the fruit and veggie stand next door, it is never a wasted trip.
