In earlier days Edam cheeses were weighed at the Kaaswaag, in the historical heart of Edam. A visit to the Kaaswaag weighing house and the summer cheese market will take you back to the origin of the world-renowned round cheeses.
The most visited cheese market in the Netherlands is the one in Edam. From April until 1 October folklore demonstrations are held every Wednesday and cheese carriers show how the heavy round Edam cheeses used to be transported on berries – just like they did years ago. This takes place on the square in front of the Kaaswaag, dating from 1778, where the cheese was weighed. The Kaaswaag has a permanent exhibition about the art of making cheese. It goes without saying that you can also sample and purchase cheese here.
