Gouda Cheese Market

The distinctive Gouda cheese wheels are delivered by horse and cart, then stacked on the ground by the farmers, before being sold in a traditional manner in front of Gouda’s beautiful old City Hall. The farmers and traders ‘clap hands’ to confirm each sale, in what can only be described as a theatrical spectacle. The Gouda Cheese Market is held on Thursday mornings from April through August.

You’ll believe that you’ve stepped back in time when you visit the Gouda Cheese Market, which was first initiated in 1395.
