Crafting Index: A Comprehensive Guide to All Recipes in Stardew Valley

Achieving 100% completion in Stardew Valley is a significant challenge, especially when it comes to crafting all available items, including hidden recipes. In this guide, we’ve compiled a comprehensive list of all craftable items for those interested in reaching this milestone.

Crafting Index

In single-player mode, there are 129 recipes, while multiplayer mode adds one more for the wedding ring. To achieve completion, not only do you need to collect all recipes, but you must also craft at least one item from each recipe. We recommend enabling “Show Advanced Crafting Information” in the settings so that you can easily track your crafting progress and find the items you haven’t crafted yet, making it easier to attain the achievement.

Recipe Acquisition

At the beginning of the game, you start with ten recipes that you can craft right away. Additionally, there are 65 recipes that become available as you level up your skills:

  • 21 for farming
  • 14 for foraging
  • 8 for mining
  • 11 for fishing
  • 11 for combat.

To collect these recipes, you simply need to increase your skill levels accordingly.

In the game, you may also find recipes available for purchase in various shops. Robin’s shop offers the most recipes, with 19 in total, primarily consisting of flooring and torches. Collecting these recipes is fairly straightforward: simply buy them when you have enough funds. If there are no recipes to unlock, exit the shop and re-enter to refresh the inventory.

One of Robin’s recipes, the Cask, becomes available after upgrading your house for the third time and unlocking the cellar.

Pierre offers three recipes for sale: grass starter, a bouquet, and a Jack-O-Lantern. The grass starter can be purchased at any time, but the bouquet and Jack-O-Lantern are only available during the Flower Dance Festival on the 24th of Spring and the Spirit’s Eve Festival on the 27th of Fall, respectively. Be sure to buy them when you see them, as missing these opportunities means waiting for another year.

The content from other shops in the game can be quite diverse. For example, the Dwarf, Krobus, the Traveling Cart, and the Desert Trader can be accessed and their recipes purchased as you progress through the game. The wedding ring recipe is particularly unique, as multiplayer players need to acquire this recipe as well.

The final shop is Mr. Qi’s Walnut Room, where the recipes can only be unlocked in the late game. To unlock these recipes, you need to first complete special quests on the left side of the Walnut Room to earn Qi Gems. Afterward, you can head to the shop on the right side and buy the corresponding recipes. The radioactive ores required for some of these recipes can only be obtained during Mr. Qi’s special quests, “Danger in the Deep” and “Skull Cavern Invasion.” Keep an eye out for these ores during the quests. If you’re unsure about how to complete Mr. Qi’s quests, you can refer to our detailed guide.
