Conscious shopping Nieuw-West

Did you know that Amsterdam Nieuw-West was designed as a 'garden city' that would blend urban areas with green spaces? Well, you're about to find out by exploring this route, which takes you to an organic pick-your-own orchard, an urban beach pavilion on the Sloterplas shore, a tea house in a former windmill on a rural cycle path, to name a few of the fun stops along the way!

Cosy tea house in a green corner

Along a rural cycle path in the neighbourhood of De Aker, there is a former windmill without blades. The windmill is home to a unique tea house, where people with intellectual disabilities enjoy working in the kitchen or service. So settle down for coffee, cake, grilled cheese sandwiches, high tea, a tasty lunch, or a refreshing drink.

Organic pick-your-own orchard, shop and garden cafe

Visit this city farm to enjoy the great outdoors in all seasons. Pick fruit in the orchard and buy organic or biodynamic vegetables, fruit and more. Then, enjoy slow coffee, apple pie made with Dutch apples or an organic lunch in the cafe.

Organic bread, flowers, coffee and more

Pop by for a fresh loaf of organic bread, sustainably grown flowers and handmade gifts. The Mooiste Markt is a place to work and learn, where talents returning to the labour market get a helping hand. They serve tasty sandwiches and good coffee in the – you guessed it – coffee corner.
