Cheese markets Edam 2019

In the Middle Ages the Edam cheese market was the heart of the city. Farmers brought their cheeses here to be weighed, sold and exported. In 1922, when cheeses started being made in factories the market was shut down. In the late eighties however it was reopened and restored. During the summer it holds historic reenactments every Wednesday from 10:30 AM to 12:30 PM.
