I bought a bag of crimini mushrooms at Bulich to use in a San Marzano tomato sauce. Garden of Spices and Madura also have various kinds of mushroom. Paffenroth has big bags of excellent onions, Mountain Sweet Berry has interesting shallots, and Keith has bags of Rocambole garlic.
Eckerton Chestnuts
Pumpkins and grapes indicate the approach of Autumn holidays, but there are still peaches, nectarines, and plums at various stands.  Cherry Lane has sweet raspberries and Berried Treasures has strawberries and raspberries.  Fantasy Fruit also has strawberries and Phillips has raspberries.
