Our visit to vegetarian shop Veggie4U in The Hague (NL)

Shop review #20 – Veggie4U is a vegetarian shop on the edge of The Hague, founded in 2013. The Hague is one of the larger cities of the Netherlands, and although Amsterdam is the official capital, The Hague is the political capital of the country. We only spent a couple of hours in The Hague, but it seems like a nice, relaxed town. Definitely want to visit again one day. And it is actually very close to Bruges, only about a 2 and a half hours drive away!

Following our lunch at the new vegetarian restaurant Hortus (blog will follow soon!), we paid a visit to vegetarian shop Veggie4U. It is labelled a ‘supermarket’, but I would rather call it a reasonably sized store. It is a vegetarian shop and not a vegan shop, so note that not all items on the photos are necessarily vegan. They do have many vegan items though:

The shop sells mainly food items, with also some body and care products. There are several freezers with many ‘meat replacers’ items, and also a large selection of vegan icecream from Professor Grunschnabel. Pity we couldn’t take that home with us!

This is what we bought: some soy chunks, soap bars, white chocolate pellets, … We hadn’t planned on visiting the shop (as it was on a Sunday, I thought it was going to be closed anyway, but it is open!), so unfortunately we didn’t have our cooling box with us. Otherwise we would surely have brought home some goodies from the freezers! Anyway, pretty glad we decided to go check it out 🙂

    Good find. It is unusual to find a natuurwinkel that doesn’t sell ‘biologish vlees’. I have been to Den Haag a few times. I’ve even stayed at the Youth Hostel near Hollands Spoor Station (which isn’t a very salubrious area), but didn’t find anything specifically vegetarian, let alone vegan, in Den Haag.

      This shop is fairly recent (I think since 2013).
      Yes indeed, it’s a pity to see the organic meat in a lot of ‘natuurwinkels’, although they of course also sell many vegan items. I don’t think veggie4U is a natuurwinkel (in that they focus on organic products). The focus is vegetarian (with lost of vegan products also).

      in front of Hollandspoor you have the vegetarian snackbar, with lots of vegan options

        Thanks bassie, we will definitely go check that out next time we’re in The Hague!

    If you haven’t tried the sandwiches (all vegan) you didnt had the full experience.
    We almost make up excuses to buy something, so we can come by and grab a bite (or 8)

      Sounds like we really need to go back there soon 😉 Thanks for your feedback Job! 🙂
