Step into the extraordinary world of Marx Mushrooms, where a passion for fungi and a desire to promote healthier and more flavorful lives collide. Inspired by the insightful teachings of Paul Stamets, Mark Buote embarked on a journey to provide top-quality mushrooms and unlock their remarkable benefits.
What sets Marx Mushrooms apart? Picture a convenient gourmet mushroom mix box brimming with up to seven varieties, each boasting unique texture and flavour. These mushrooms are picked within 24 hours of when you receive them - fresh and local. Just the way we love it at Horton. Marx Mushrooms moved inside the market this year, enabling refrigeration of the mushrooms at the market, ensuring long-lasting freshness for its valued customers.
Marx Mushrooms offers a delightful assortment of nearly a dozen gourmet mushrooms. From timeless classics like white, crimini, and portobello to an array of functional mushroom teas, coffees, and capsules, they cater to all your mushroom desires. "We strive to source as many seasonal wild mushrooms as possible," adding a touch of nature's bounty to our offerings.
Along this whimsical journey, the team at Marx Mushrooms has learned a fascinating lesson: "Fungus came to this planet which was just rock, water, and anaerobic bacteria, and created everything that makes this planet the oasis that it can be."

Among their repertoire of delights, what do they recommend? "My favourite product we offer is our lion's mane chai tea; its warm spicy flavour pairs well with honey and a bit of foamed milk or ice cream to make a tasty chai latte that's also good for your brain."
Remember one fundamental rule: "Treat them all the same" to best savour the exquisite flavours of Marx Mushrooms mushrooms. Pan-fry them in your preferred fat (though it's suggested that butter is a divine choice), taking care not to overcook, much like preparing seafood. For a culinary adventure, "My personal favourite is to sauté in gochujang, a fermented red chilli paste, for a juicy spicy Korean barbecue-style meal paired with noodles or rice, and a bit of green onion," and prepare for a feast that will transport your taste buds.
