CHEESEMARKET, THE  ATMOSPHERE OF THE PAST,

SHOW OF THE PRESENT 

In cooperation with Beemster cheese dairy the Hoorn cheesemarket, in the form of a show, lives again every Thursday in the months of June, July and August. The market superintendent, the cheese carriers, merchants, cheese girls, cheesezetters and waggonmasters with horses and carriages take part in this particular, musical play.
