Week 43: 26th of October

You are currently viewing Week 43: 26th of October

Fall has clearly started, but the temperature will be quite high this coming week. Combined with all the greens in next week’s package, you might start imagining that it’s already spring: pointed cabbage, endive lettuce, green chicory and celery. Nonetheless, there are also some autumn colors, with the purple carrots, turnips and red bell pepper. Vegetables that allow for a lot of different recipes. The turnip can be used as a substitute for potatoes, but you can also eat it raw, for example in a salad. Deliciously fresh and crunchy!

In next Wednesday’s vegetable package:

  • 1 pc pointed cabbage | Kievit in Katwijk
  • 1 pc endive lettuce | Kievit in Katwijk
  • 1 pc green chicory | Hoeve Biesland in Delfgauw (oogstaandeel)
  • 1 pc celery | David Luijendijk in Roelofarendsveen
  • 500 g purple carrots | Peter van de Erve in Goudswaard
  • 400 g turnips | Jelle Knoot in Numansdorp
  • 2 pcs red bell pepper | Frank de Koning in Brielle
  • 750 g Texla potatoes | Bramenhorst in Wassenaar

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.

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.
