When I have time I make the tiniest detour to buy fresh fruits and vegetables from the Landwinkel (literally meaning Country Shop).
All the produce is local.
There is also a good selection of frozen beef products. The meat comes from a local farm called Boerderij Assenberg.
Not only great local produce, the prices are not too steep at all. Usually you pay more for organic foods.

A 'kwekerij' is a nursery in Dutch. You can go there all year round and buy nice plants (of which I have little intelligible to say, since I'm no good at plants!).
But this nursery has a twist: they also sell regional and local produce. Which is great fun because I never realised how much really regional produce there is (read on below!).
Once a year there is a Pumkin Fair. All the produces come together at the nursery to show off their products. It's a real country happening with a bit of music, things to eat (wonderful pumkin soup!), things to taste, stalls to browse.
For the occassion there is a special Parking 100m away and a tractor can bring everything you bought right to your car.
What to buy: Plants such as you can find on this list here.
Their speciality is pumpkins. All kinds of pumpkins!
And there is a shop with regional produce like honeys, jams, pumpkin oil, smoked garlic, all sorts of baking products, cordials, cheese, beer, potatoes, etc. etc.
The shop is open on Thursdays, Friday's and Saturdays from 10-12 and 13-17 hrs.
What to pay: I bought 200ml pumpkin oil for 10 euro, some Reine Claude cordial for 2.50 euro, 2 pumpkins for 5 euro (to make my own soup), a bunch of books from the 2-nd hand book stall for 15 euro, smoked garlic for 4 euro (6 bulbs), a smoked fish for 1 euro, and an ice-cream for 50 cents.Related to:
