The Mushroom Shop
from Font-Romeu

The first Mushroom Boutique was created in Font-Romeu in Cerdanya (Eastern Pyrenees) in 1998

In 2002, the Boutique du Champignon received a Golden Mercury there for its innovation.

Created by the CCIs and the Ministry of SMEs, Trade and Crafts, this award honors the best traders in France for their innovation, the quality of their marketing and financial management, as well as for their quality approach.

The Mushroom Shop
from Villefranche de Conflent

En 2003, the Boutique du Champignon moved from Font-Romeu to set up in the magnificent fortified village of Villefranche de Conflent, still in the Catalan Pyrenees, halfway between Perpignan and Andorra. 

It occupies there a former guardhouse of this bastion erected by Vauban.

3 vaulted rooms in beautiful marble, granite and cayrou (brick used in Catalan country since the XVth century), shelter an enchanted shop on 150 square meters dedicated to the mushroom and the wonderful world which surrounds it.

The Mushroom Shop
from Eguisheim

And it is 1000 km from its Pyrenean cradle that a second Boutique du Champignon has chosen to take root in Eguisheim in Alsace in 2006.

Alsace, a land of noble gastronomic traditions where mushrooms from the neighboring Vosges cannot be missed in the kitchen, especially game. 

Eguisheim, at the gates of Colmar, is not content with being, through its cultural center, one of the most beautiful villages in France for tourists.

Eguisheim is the winner of the France 2 television program: "The Preferred Village of the French 2013".

Eguisheim

The village has warm inhabitants who energize the life of the city through a particularly rich and dense associative activity. 

It is good to live and work in Eguisheim, our visitors perceive and appreciate this serene climate and they are even looking for it again by frequenting the village assiduously in different seasons. 

Eguisheim is not a village where you just pass by, it is a village where you stop to take the time to appreciate its beauty and riches (historical and heritage, oenological and culinary).

The warm atmosphere is complemented by zen music or the sounds of nature.

Our shop

La Boutique du Champignon has chosen to make its nest there to share with you its own treasures of art and gastronomic specialties made from mushrooms. 

The exceptional setting of Eguisheim, cradle of the Alsatian vineyard, a village of traditions and gastronomy, with its streets in concentric circles around the medieval castle and its picturesque half-timbered houses richly flowered, seduced us.

It is in a spacious and warm room in the old classified center that we present the mushroom in all its forms.

Second Boutique du Champignon in France therefore, which allowed us to further refine this great company, according to a unique concept in Europe. 

The interior design and decoration are meticulous to create a beautiful boutique while wanting to remain sober and in good taste.

The wooden half-timberings are visible, the display shelves are in solid birch wood, light in color.

The decorative objects are reminiscent of nature: bark of pine and cork oak, pine cones, dead leaves, forest mushrooms in season, green plants. 

In 2014, for our Boutique du Champignon in Eguisheim, we received the Welcome Trophy awarded by the CCI of Colmar and Center Alsace.
