At the end of April and the beginning of May three typical Dutch events take place every year. I noticed that these events often raise questions to internationals living in the Netherlands. If properly explained, internationals can more easily relate to the Dutch behavior during these days. Understanding the customs and rituals also helps to emotionally connect with the Dutch during these days and take part in the celebrations. I therefore will try to bring some clarity on the meaning of these events to the Dutch and explain some of the customs, habits and rituals that can be seen during these events.
We asked our members recently about where to find the best turkey, goose and poultry in Almere for the upcoming festive season – and here’s their best picks for you!
Hans v.d. Bor – On the market in Stad (Wednesday and Saturdays) (turkey and goose)
” I got a big turkey from the market in Stad last year” – Michelle
“I always get it from Hans in the Market” – Christina
Poulier Slagerij j. Tromp (Purmerend) (turkey and goose)
“Tromp is awesome!” – Tanja
Poelier Rijlaarsdam Almere (turkey and goose)
“We got turkey legs and rollade here last year (also kipfilet) and it’s great quality too!” – Brenda
“There’s a great wholesale butcher in Lelystad, who’s dirt cheap and has the best pork belly! They do turkey too.” – Maarten
