Week 41: 12th of October

You are currently viewing Week 41: 12th of October

Jerusalem artichoke and potato (aardpeer and aardappel in Dutch) could just be related to each other as announced among each other in our package this week. Their flavours, origin and structure are very far apart! The Jerusalem artichoke comes from the compound flower family and the potato comes from the nightshade family. What binds them together is their ode to the earth (aarde), a beautiful message to reflect on when cooking this week.

In next Wednesday’s vegetable package:

  • 1 selery | Kievit, Katwijk
  • 1 bunch of thyme | Kievit, Katwijk
  • harvest share of Swiss chard | Hoeve Biesland, Delfgauw
  • 600 gr. carrot | Peter van de Erve, Goudswaard

  • 500 gr. red onion | Peter van de Erve, Goudswaard

We also sell: Haagse Sambal, chocolate, bread, eggs and cheese.

Helping hands
Your weekly vegetable box is the result of the joint effort of many participants of the Lekkernassûh community. If you would like to help out on Wednesdays, please fill in the Market schedule. If you would like to participate in another form, why not check out our vacancies.

Location Mozartlaan has moved to Buurthuis Wings (Mozartlaan 195). See Locations & Opening hours for all information.

Bicycle parking
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.

Package-free shop
The package free shop is open every Saturday from 10:00 until 12:45. 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!
If you would like to pick up your veggie package on Wednesday,  your account needs to be set on ACTIEF before Sunday at 8 pm. If you don’t want a Lekkernassûh package coming Wednesday, your account has to be on PAUZE before Sunday at 20:00 h. In this way, we can ensure that we buy in the right amount of vegetables, and combat food waste together. Thank you! More information on how to change your status can be found here.
