The best Friday morning at the Waagplein.

The cheese market is the most traditional attraction of Alkmaar. From April to September you can visit this event every Friday morning (from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm) at the Waagplein. Cheese carriers, cheese girls, market masters and traders: the cheese market is a unique experience.

The cheeses are transported on berries by cheese carriers. Subsequently, in the Waag building - on the basis of the weight - the price is negotiated. There are also cheese girls who inform visitors about the ins and outs of the market.

Can not you get enough of cheese? After the end of the market you will walk in with us. The Alkmaar Notenbranderij is literally around the corner. You can find our store on the Magdalenenstraat 8. On Friday we are open until 18:00.
