Wild foraged Chanterelles in a market, Indre et Loire, France. Photo by Loire Valley Time Travel.
Chanterelles in the market at Loches for €11 for 500g, wild picked in the Sologne by a licenced mushroom forager.

These little brown and yellow mushrooms are known as Trumpet Chanterelles in English, but just Chanterelles in French. Confusingly, the mushrooms known as Chanterelles in English are known as Girolles in French. Their scientific name is Cantherellus tubaeformis and they are a popular wild foraged edible species, found in pine forests.
