It’s beginning to look a lot like spring! Time to bring cucumber back to your salads and sandwiches. This week the package also contains wild (or ‘coarse’) spinach, which is only harvested when the leaf is fully grown. Like regular spinach, wild spinach is rich in nutrients (especially iron) but its leaves are larger and ribbed.
We hope you like this package again, please don’t forget to change your status by Sunday 8 p.m. if necessary!

Are you picking up your package from the Gymzaal? Please don’t forget to only place your bicycles in the designated bicycle stands (across the street), to make sure we don’t inconvenience our neighbors. Thank you in advance!
Paying with Timebank hours
You can use Timebank hours to pay for your vegetable package, but also for example for cheese and products from the package-free shop. You can earn Timebank hours by helping out as a volunteer, for example at the market. Want to know more? Check it out here.
The package free shop is open every Saturday from 11:00 until 13:30. Extended opening hours require more volunteers. Would you like to help? Sign up via this link. More info about the shop can be found here.
Don’t forget to change your status!
