Gilroy also produces mushrooms in considerable quantity. Gilroy's nickname is 'Garlic Capital of the World,' although Gilroy does not lead the world in garlic production. While garlic is grown in Gilroy, its nickname comes from the fact that Gilroy Foods processes more garlic than any other factory in the world; most pickled, minced, and powdered garlic come from Gilroy.
