Conscious shopping Weesp
What better way to discover Amsterdam Weesp, the Dutch capital's newest city area, than with a trip to a picking garden with sustainably grown flowers, a coffee roaster that works directly with farmers, an organic dairy farm or a cosy thrift store?

A picking garden with sustainably grown flowers
Here they cultivate flowers with natural compost, without chemical pesticides and with organically grown perennials, flower bulbs and dahlia tubers. Some of the flower seeds even come from Pluk Me's harvest. Then, in the sunny months (typically from the beginning of July to the end of October), you can pick the blooming flowers for your home. You can enjoy high tea and other treats in Marie's adjoining tea barn.
Coffee with impact
Gosling works directly with coffee farmers to ensure they receive a fairer price. The brand aims to provide farmers with a living income, make coffee cultivation more sustainable, and support local communities through carefully selected projects. By purchasing Gosling coffee for home or your office break, you can make a difference in the lives of coffee-farming families in Uganda, Ethiopia, Rwanda, Colombia and Peru. Call for a personal tour and a freshly brewed cup.
A social farm shop
You can purchase fresh meat, fruit, soup, and pantry staples such as jam, honey and oil at this daycare farm. The products come directly from the farm or fellow farmers, gardeners and growers. In the fall, you can also find wood for the fireplace. Talented people who need care work on the farm under the guidance and supervision that allows them to blossom. Hoogerlust will change its name to De Bleije Farm, so visit debleijeboerderij.nl soon for more information.
A cosy thrift store
Shop here for second-hand clothing, home accessories, books and toys. You make the world greener and more sustainable through your purchase by reusing preloved items and supporting De Kringloper's social mission. As a non-profit store, it helps people facing employment difficulties find more stable work.

If you visit, please bring a tote bag or shopping basket. They sell products from the farm and other local goodies in the shop.
