We might have gone too late, but there were too many people running across the place, so that one did not get a good impression what the Cheese market is all about.

The market is very nice and lovely. I really enjoyed it. I recommend it. Don't forget your camera and a few euros for buying cheese, it's very tasty !!

The Gouda Cheese market is really fun. We parked in QPark and then walked less than 15 minutes. Gouda is very beautiful with quaint buildings and canals. There was a competition where you could guess the weight of about 8 cheeses together, and at 12h30 they were going to announce the winner. It appeared that we had won the cheese,... More

This lovely museum doesn't open until 12. It's €4.50 to go in and the guide is very helpfully, happily showing you the beautiful pieces in the museum and answering any questions that you have. It is only a small display but it has an interesting film to watch and some good taste tests as well. The building is the old... More

We'd already been staying in Delft for several weeks when we decided to do a day trip to Gouda to see the Thursday Cheese Market. What a hoot. The cheese buyers and sellers are real characters and you get the sense that the hand slapping and banter associated with each transaction is true to the tradition that goes back hundreds... More

The Gouda cheese market is open from the beginning of April until the end of August, and takes place every Thursday morning. It is situated in front of the Gouda City Hall and the Cheese weighing building (De Waag). Gouda is known for its Dutch cheese but it is not only cheese you will find at this market. Be sure...

Wonderful spectacle in the summer months - check online for the event. Cheese selling at its best! All for fun! Worth going to Gouda - start early, get there before 11am so that you see the cheese market, some shoppping, coffee in cafe centraal, then visit Sint Janskirk.
