Gouda Cheese Market

Gouda, The Netherlands
Thursday 14th April 2016
The GOUDA CHEESE MARKET is a spectacular and historic scene, held every
Thursday morning from 7 April to 1 September 2016. Farmers negotiate over the price with the traders in front of the Waag (the Weighing House). The deal is still sealed with a handshake, as it has been for centuries. The cheeses are delivered to and from the market on wagonettes and weighed after the sale in the monumental Goudse Waag building. On several dates during the holidays there is also a GOUDA CHILDREN'S CHEESE MARKET. And if after the cheese market you go in search of the rich history of the city, you will come across our Gouda cheese in various places
