Things are getting wild at area farmers tailgate markets. Sightings include wild foods such as foraged mushrooms, fermented veggies and more.

While most vendors grow food to sell at markets, other vendors go foraging for it instead, bringing their wild harvested to market. No Taste Like Home (River Arts District Farmers Market) has all sorts of wild harvested foods: dried plants, mushrooms and more…

Other wild items can be found throughout the season, some of them we’ve mentioned previously this summer such as wineberries and autumn berries. Now is the time to explore the market and see what wild foods you can discover.

You can’t learn to forage from a website.
Always learn from an expert, preferably your parents.
