Gouda in Holland
When thinking about cheese you might find yourself thinking about the label "Gouda", and the City of Gouda is what gave the cheese its name. Having been there some 30 years ago, I found it high time to be back to see the place again.
When I was last there, on a Thursday, they had actually their cheese market up and running. This time it was a Sunday - again - and no such thing as a cheese market was there.
Trust me, they still do the cheese market, still on a Thursday morning, in the fashion of the early days. Then they place their cheese on the market place and sell the product. Today it is only for the tourists, and only between April and August.
