Gouda Cheese Market

The GOUDA CHEESE MARKET is a spectacular and historic scene, held every Thursday morning between the hours of 10.00 and 12.30 (10 am to 12.30 pm) from 7 April to 1 September (except on Ascension Day – 5 May. 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.
