About the Cheesemarket & Hoorn
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.
Also during the cheesemarket there will twice be a performance of a dance group from West- Friesland. It dances old Dutch dances to live music.
