Due to COVID-19, it is expected that this year's GOUDA CHEESE MARKET will not take place before the summer holidays. As soon as more information is available, we will mention it here.

A Thursday morning in Gouda, somewhere between April and September. Soon you will hear the clapping of the cheese traders and farmers. And there they are: the famous Gouda cheese girls, surrounded by tourists. Cheese bricks come and go, pulled by horses. They stop just before the Goudse Waag. Cheese boys jump out and start unloading the cheeses while throwing it 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 on time at the market.

From April 1 to August 26, 2021, the traditional cheese market takes place every Thursday morning (except on Ascension Day 13 May) from 10:00 to 12:30. Besides the world famous cheese, you can enjoy the stalls filled with local products. In addition to the cheese trade and cheese making, you will also find a crafts market.

There is also plenty to do in Gouda in the afternoon. For example, you can join a canal tour or walk with the Goudse Guides Gilde. Or do the Beer Wine-Cheese battle at the Museumhavencafé 't IJsselhuis and discover which combination tastes best.
