The Exotenhof is special!
What makes this shop so special is its fantastic assortment, fruit and vegetables in all shapes and sizes. They are also very friendly and knowledgeable.
They stock various types of turnip, Jerusalem artichoke, yellow beetroot and root vegetables used in the Indonesian cuisine. They have many different types of salad leaf mustard salad (nutty taste), Mizuna (like ruccola) water cress, Romaine, little gem etc etc. You can pick and choose your own “mesclun” mixed salad, according to the seasonality. Of course they also have their own “mesclun” ready mixed and very fresh!
They have a lot of legumes such as beans and lentils in large bales; also lots of fresh and dried herbs: anything you need to prepare that special meal. We can recommend their website; you can see their assortment and whether it is in stock. They have photographs with little red and green markers very useful! You can also read the latest tweets.
