Up in the hills there’s a small river cave where a pair of stone giants have set up their own private grow-op to supply themselves (and a few shamans and priests back “home”) with giant-scale psychedelic fungus.
The “psychedelic cellar” itself is well protected in giant terms. Stone bars block access along the river to all but the smallest of would-be thieves (halflings could be an issue), and the door to the cave is kept under lock and key. The easiest access to a would-be thief is to work their way up the icy cold stream that feeds the mushroom cave. At the tightest point, this requires about five feet of travel underwater where the cave ceiling is only an inch above the stream’s surface at best.
Of course, enterprising thieves could slip in and out of the cave this way to steal human-use quantities of psychedelics (using waterproof bags) as long as they timed their runs for when the giants aren’t in the cellar.
The two giants who live here are… predictably sketchy. Either tripping hardcore or coming down, they are at least a little paranoid about other stone giants coming to snatch their stash – or worse, telling the hill giants about their source and having a full on hill giant home invasion on their hands.

Are the gigantic googly eyes also apart of the attraction?

That home invasion worry sounds like the making of a reverse adventure: The PCs had some reason to want to purchase some of the shrooms, (perhaps they’re needed for some divination ritual), so they go to talk to the stone(r) giants. Once there they find out about how someone tried to extort a goodly amount of production ‘or else’.
Well, the ‘or else’ is coming and the PCs get to play things from the other side of the dungeon. Obviously, the incoming group is too powerful to reasonably take on full force so they are going to have to get smart and sneaky.
