This week the Chioggia beet is back, just a bit different from the regular red beetroot! Its name comes from the town of Chioggia, in the province of Venice in Italy, where the it’s originated. The beetroot is cheerfully red and white striped and has a sweet taste. Don’t throw away the young leaves, these are also edible and are full of vitamins! You can use it in a salad or for a stir-fry, for example together with the mushrooms.

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.
