Most striking feature:
From the rooftop gardens in Brooklyn and Portland to the outskirts of Rotterdam: growing fruit and vegetables in an urban environment is what the world likes these days. Uit je eigen stad is an agricultural city farm – they grow their own vegetables and have chicken walking around – nearby Marconiplein in Rotterdam. There’s a shop where you can buy all of that freshly produced food next to bread of Vlaamsch Broodhuys and wine from Grapedistrict. They’ve opened the doors on September 22 and are planning to give workshops about how you can grow your own vegetables while living in the city. But the best thing is: they have a cool restaurant which is open during lunch and dinner. The menu changes on a daily base because it depends on the food coming out of their garden. I’ve spotted a salmon salad on the menu, next to the famous Rotterdamse kroketten. There’s free parking space and when the sun is out you can sit outside (while your children can play in the sandbox).
