    hi everyone. I'm from the st. louis area and was wondering if anyone has been selling/buying morels in the area. I know a guy buys them at the Soulard Market on Saturdays, but i was looking for someone closer to west county like a resturant. Also, I heard they were paying 20 bucks a pound, but it seems like whenever i call somewhere they don't have an answer for me and don't call back. Any help would be great, otherwise I'm going to be freezing about 10 pounds before they go bad.:sad2:

    Man I wish I had your problem Snagman. I'm a morel junky. Only problem is I can't seem to find the stinking things. Everybody else finds them and then I eat them. :embarassed:
