A cheese market in the Netherlands

There are 4 traditional cheese markets operating in the Netherlands (in Alkmaar, Gouda, Edam and Hoorn).
In this postcard you can see Gouda cheese which has been traded on the Gouda Market for more than 3 centuries. Nowadays it is open from mid-June until August. Farmers from the region gather to have their cheese weighed, tasted and priced. The Gouda cheese market is surrounded by many exhibitions of authentic Dutch professions, from cheese production to clog making and buttermilk preparation.
