Yes, they are sold as food.

The mushrooms to the right of the Morchella are Hebeloma, observation 114541. She was also selling Gomphus floccosus, Lepista flaccida (she she had a huge bag of those), Ramaria, Hygrophorus chrysodon (only one) and a couple others that I need to ID with a microscope.

Wow! That’s quite an assortment…

presumably being sold as food. I see the photos are labeled “Hebeloma and Morchella.” Are some of these mushrooms Hebeloma? A few look like Hebeloma crustuliniforme… light brown adnexed gills, upper stipe with whitish flakes.

Are those large bushy mushrooms in the upper left of the 3rd photo down grifola?
