the dark words on top are the common names of the mushroom (e.g. fliegenpilz = fly mushroom / fly argaric), and then below is the edibility (e.g. eßbar = edible, schwach giftig = slightly poisonous). It's a nice change to see factual info about amanita muscaria - normally in mushroom guides they have "DEADLY POISONOUS" plastered all over it!

they are not actually for sale; there was this awesome guy in a strange coat and hat with a sign that said "Pilze sind unsere Freunde" (mushrooms are our friends) talking to people about mushrooms. I took photos as I have seen all these mushrooms in the forest but wasn't sure which were edible - turns out most are, but there are one or two deadly ones that are very hard to tell apart.

this is my favourite. i wish everyone could buy all they need, including mushrooms, at a local growers' market. it's like a fairy tale.

is it germany? or somewhere else with a german dialect ?

i love european mushrooms and plants

yeah it's Germany. in some ways a very progressive place, in other ways not (e.g. Codex Alimentarius laws are already in place). but yes the different plants and fungi are very interesting for me too.
