You can find cucumbers, tomatoes and peppers in stores all year round. But did you know that the harvest season of these vegetables only runs until October/November in the Netherlands? This week you can enjoy the last cucumbers and tomatoes of the season! The cucumbers have grown big and are a bit crooked, but they are still delicious. The tomatoes are ideal for a hot soup. You can even combine them with the bell peppers for a delicious tomato-pepper soup.

Your help is needed!
Your weekly vegetable package is the result of the collaboration of many participants from the Lekkernassûh community. In the past weeks, we’ve been struggling to get enough volunteers for the Wednesday market. Can you help out? Sign up using the market schedule.
Paying with Timebank hours
You can use your Timebank hours to pay for your vegetable package, but also, for example, cheese or products from the packaging-free store. You earn Timebank hours by, for example, helping on the market. Knowing more? Then look here.
Do you have a surplus of Timebank hours? Please spend them at the market or package-free shop, or (if you don’t manage to spend them all), please donate them to Lekkernassuh! Ater the summer, we have a big shortage of hours, because there are more going out than coming back in.
The package-free shop is open every Saturday from 11 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. at the Helena. Longer opening hours call for more volunteers. Would you like to help sometime? Register via this link. More information about the store can be found here.
