Lots of resturants and a few bars are lining the square. In the middle is the tow hall. Watch out for bicycles !

We happened to visit on Market Day. Sun was shining, stalls busy, Town Hall magnificent in the centre of the plaza...and we found some wonderful typically Dutch gluten free pastries and biscuits at De Vlaam on the square. The cheese is of course delicious. We drove from Delft, to Gouda, and then on to Kinderdijk Windmills - the perfect Dutch... More

Going to the market day was the high point of the trip to Gouda, it wasn't just about the cheese but the other items was fun and good food. The town is very walkable and you can get around without a car or bike! Not to be missed

The actual market is very much just for the locals with things like bike accessories, hosiery and fabric/wool, but I was lucky to be there for the cheese market which made for some great photos. The area the market is held is very historic and beautiful and the town itself is very walkable! Love Gouda!

Market was great but trying to get there a nightmare! Advice: Do not drive a big car as streets are very narrow and many closed off and one-way! Parking: - the first spot we found was for 1 hour parking only - the second only took 'pinpas' local card not cash or other cards - parking half over water is... More

We went to Gouda on Market Day and it was a great experience, the cheese market was how you expect to see it in Holland. The traders were dressed in traditional clothing and welcomed everyone to take part, it was very busy but they were happy to have photos taken. The town itself is very pleasant and all around the...
