France: Drought leads to mushroom shortage in Drome region

Mushrooms in the Drome region of France have suffered from the lack of rain and humidity. Autumn may have begun and normally mushroom picking should be well underway, but baskets are empty and no bolet or cepes mushrooms can be found. Mycology clubs are cancelling their harvests and the markets are stocked with mushrooms from other regions such as the Pyrénées or the Jura. The shelves are full of mushrooms from wholesalers, but the choice is limited mainly to girolles and chanterelles mushrooms. Prices have also increased due to the shortage to about €5-€6/200 grams.
