Food & Drinks in the Kop van Drenthe
Enjoying a cool refreshment after a wonderful day of swimming, cycling, or shopping: it's the dream of every vacationer. In any weather and for every taste, the Kop van Drenthe offers a wide range of hospitality facilities. Would you rather enjoy a delicious artisanal ice cream from the ice cream parlour or a refreshing drink on a sunny terrace by the water? Or what about an elaborate high tea in one of the tea gardens? You can taste homemade regional dishes at good restaurants, and in the evening hours, you are more than welcome in the pleasant cafes. Here, each enthusiast will find something to his/her liking.
The regional markets, where fresh products from the region are being offered from the spring through to the autumn, are also very special. An overview of these can be found under markets. However, you can also get your products directly from the gardeners. Close to Veenhuizen, delicious asparagus are picked, and in the Tuinen van Weldadigheid (Gardens of Benevolence), nearly forgotten types of vegetables are being grown. Many small shops sell homemade jams, honey, and other delicacies. But at the various stalls at the side of the road, you can easily buy your products, too.
