1. Greenhouse gatherings
De Kas was founded by Michelin-starred chef Gert Jan Hageman. The restaurant grows most of its own organic vegetables and herbs. Meat and other ingredients come from local producers. The seasonal slow-food menu is popular amongst visitors wanting to escape to this urban oasis, if only for a couple of hours.

2. French flair
When Frenchman Jean-Daniel Redon came to Amsterdam to visit his sister 17 years ago, he liked it so much that he stayed for good. He now cooks and sells French food at his delicatessen Mange Maintenant borrowing recipes from his grandmother. The beautifully prepared and presented soups, sandwiches and other organic delicacies can be enjoyed in or taken away.

3. Vagabond veggies
Vegan cupcakes, gluten-free brownies, raw homemade chocolates, organic juices and salads make the perfect pick-me-up for hungry vegetarians on the go. Vegabond also stocks a selection of organic delicacies that make great souvenirs for vegans and vegetarians alike.
4. Salad days
If you’re looking for a hearty but healthy lunch, nothing beats a huge, fresh salad made to order at Sla. Combine your favourite organic greens and top them with a choice of roasted vegetables, quinoa, mackerel or chicken. Those craving a little extra can top off their meal with a tasty smoothie or local beer.

5. Saturday samplings
Saturday is when people head to the Jordaan neighbourhood to stock up on organic foods at Noordemarkt. Open from 9am to 5pm, the market offers everything any genuine foodie could ever dream of: local sausages, seasonal vegetables, dried mushrooms, delicious Dutch cheese, oven-fresh bread and even oysters. And the best part is that many stalls offer free samples.
