We used to sell directly to a couple of restaurants when I was a kid....

I'd like to buy some...I'd like to find them myself even more.

If you find one in Thurston county let me know.

I stopped to talk with a road side seller the other day inquiring if they bought. They said no and that they didn't know of anyone who bought. I said thanks (as I thought "you lying SOB") and gave 5lbs to my coworkers. Still got about 5 lbs to give away or eat. I put up about 15 lbs in the last couple weeks.

BTKR - I'd love to take some off your hands for this weekend.  I'm doing some elk backstrap for a non-hunting relative and thought about buying some.  Rather buy a pound or two from you than a stranger  ;)

I've seen some roadside buyers around the Forks area.  One across the highway from Thriftway, one in the town of Beaver, and there was a stand or two in between.

No problem Tom. I thought I read the going rate was $20-$25 a pound with a 5 pound minimum.  :IBCOOL:

I will just give some to ya. Are you going to be around today? I will try to call you in a bit.

No, I'm working in Oregon today but will be around tomorrow.  I can swing by anytime that works for you, before/after work, etc.

Man, the prices really went up, huh?!  :rolleyes:

I read that somewhere also, got a little excited, but I seriously doubt that price.
I wish, could pay for a few hunting trips.....

Carpinitos in Kent had chanterelles last week for $5.49 a pound if anyone's interested.

Sounds right.

The roadside seller had them at $5 a pound. Two different grocery stores had them between $9 and $15.

Yea, I am not sure what the poster was trying to say, but $20 is a bit high for sure. Maybe the poster was high?  :chuckle:

Hey BTKR. If I remember right there is a buyer in Dayton. Just before Matlock. I don't know if they are there this year or not but it seems like I remember seeing them set up last year. But my memory has been known to fail me on occasion.
It's not the size of the trophy that make's it a trophy.

How much money can you get for turning in chanterelles? Always have heard about people doing it but never really heard how much $ they get for them.

I have no idea, but when I see them for sale at $5 a pound, it can't be much. I would rather eat them, put them up (either can, freeze, or dehydrate) or give them away.

There was a guy buying off Exit 99 but I did not see him this year.  I thought he was only paying $1 per pound or something crazy like that.

 Theres a guy with a tent set up at Carnivle Market here in Longview buying, he's paying $2 a pound for #1s, 3 for cauliflour. Prices are abit low this year, but like said before lots of mushrooms out there . Supply and demand.
