Historic Cheese Market

Genuine traditional farmhouse cheeses that are transported on old-fashioned tractors.

Woerden is a real cheese city. It is therefore the best place to treat the public to a festive cheese feast; The ‘Boerenkaasmarkt’. The town has a centuries-old cheese market tradition that still persists. The first batches of cheese were transported from the surrounding countryside to the center of the city of Woerden as early as 1885 to be traded.

This year the cheese markets will be held from April 20 to August 24 from 10.00 – 12:30. With the exception of Saturday April 27 (Koningsdag).

Special markets:

  • Saturday June 1, National Grass Cheese Day
  • Saturday August 24, Historical cheese market
