Every Tuesday we organize a meet-up where the neighbours (Buren) of De Ceuvel can do their grocery shopping directly with the Farmers (Boeren) based in the local area. Through the platform boerenenburen.nl the you can place your orders for fruit, veggies, bread, dairy, honey and other products directly with the farmer before Sunday evening. This way the farmers know exactly what to bring on Tuesday evening. The farmers bring the products to De Ceuvel themselves, which creates a meeting space for our neighbours and the local farmers. Many of the farmers are also regular suppliers of Café de Ceuvel.
In this way undercut the supermarkets and work towards creating a transparant food system. Urbanites learn where their food comes from and at the same time, producers get a fairer price for their produce. So many Amsterdammers don’t know what kind of fresh goods are available just around the corner, and De Buurderij is the perfect place to learn!
Buurderij De Ceuvel is facilitated by Boeren & Buren Nederland (‘The Food Assembly’ in the UK), and locally organized by Pieternel.
