A visit to Brabant simply must include a sampling of the local specialties. It's a strawberry ans asparagus region and has it's own locally brewed Trappist beer. La Trappe is the oldest Trappist beer brewed in the Netherlands ans the monks of Our Lady of Koningshoeve Abbey, near Tilburg, have produced it since 1884. Local produce such as asparagus, strawberries and other fruits, cheeses and meats can be bought at farmer's markets and local or farm shops. That the people of Brabant love good food is also apparent in the trendy food market concepts in Eindhoven and 's-Hertogenbosch, definitely worth a visit if you are in hte neighbourhood.
