And there they are: the famous Gouda cheese girls, surrounded by tourists. They come and go, pulled by horses. They come to a halt just before the Weigh House in Gouda. The cheese boys jump out and start unloading the cheeses, while throwing them over. The GOUDA CHEESE MARKET is a spectacular historical and nostalgic scene. If you would like to visit the cheese market, make sure you are at the Market on time.
From April 1 to August 26, 2021, the traditional cheese market takes place every Thursday morning (except on Ascension Day, May 13) from 10:00 to 12:30. In addition to the world-famous cheese, you can enjoy stalls filled with regional products. In addition to cheese trade and cheese making, you will also find a craft market.
There is also plenty to do in Gouda in the afternoon. For example, you can join a canal tour or walk with the Gouda Guides Guild. Or take part in the Beer, Wine and Cheese Battle at Museumhaven Café ‘t IJsselhuis and find out which combination tastes best.
