Large and varied range of fresh mushrooms (indigenous and exotic), white and black truffles, fresh specialities (incl. seasonal), and derivative products such as oil and mushroom crisps. Italian deli brand Tesori del Matese also chose Mushroom City as exclusive distributer for its treasured truffle products.
Always fresh and stored in perfect conditions, we transport our products in six refrigerated vans and have the right machinery to peel, cut and package them.
We sell our mushrooms whole or cut ready to go in the pan.
We supply restaurants, grocer’s shops, delis and specialist stores, but also private customers. Our products can be collected from us in Tielt-Winge, but we deliver to our professional clients (in the Belgian provinces of Limburg, Flemish Brabant, Antwerp, Walloon Brabant, Namur and Liège as well as Brussels).
We also have a stall at the weekly markets in Brussels (Eugène Flagey Square in Ixelles) on Saturdays and Sundays from 9 am to 2 pm and in Leuven (at Heverlee market) on Sundays from 8 am to 1 pm.
Customers and associations can ask us to organise a tasting session or provide an info stand at events. After all, we love nothing better than promoting our products and making them accessible to the wider public!
We always keep close tabs on what is on offer worldwide, as that way we can provide our customers with original and surprising things on a regular basis. Though apart from that, people often ask us whether we have something new or exciting. A question that nearly always gets ‘yes’ for an answer!
Mushroom City originally started off in 1987 as a modest market stall run by Luc Wolfs selling a very limited range of white button and oyster mushrooms.
The supply of wild mushrooms was a bit slow at times or the crop was meagre because of the weather, which soon prompted him to add other products to keep going during dryer spells. And thus, the range grew to include asparagus, chicory and even red fruits in spring and summer.
As Luc acquired more experience and knowledge of his products, he expanded his range even further. Supply and demand found each other time and time again with new species of mushroom from all over the world, truffles, more fruit and vegetables, other seasonal produce, specialities, delicacies and derivative products like truffle and olive oil.
Even today, Mushroom City keeps on adding to its range of products and services, which at the moment includes scores of mushroom species and other fresh products.
The second generation is already secure too, as daughter Kim and her husband Jan Mercken are carrying on, spreading the word about Mushroom City’s quality products and its mission of making them accessible to the wider public.
Mission & Vision
We offer indigenous and exotic mushrooms, white and black truffles, seasonal produce like asparagus, chicory, strawberries, tomatoes from Stoffels Tomato Nursery, olive oil and much more. Because we know our products and their producers through and through, we can provide all our customers with the best possible quality available worldwide.
We are not only there to sell, however, we are also happy to give advice about our mushrooms. Because our staff know a considerable number of them, from your bog standard button mushroom, over oyster and shiitake mushrooms to porcelain mushrooms. This means we are always able to recommend the right mushroom for every menu and dish, throwing in some tips about all the scrumptious treats that can be made with them for good measure.
It is our mission, after all, to spread the word about our products and to make them accessible to the wider public.
