Alkmaar- A little down piled with cheese.
Alkmaar is the most famous town in Netherlands with cheese markets. Every Friday morning between April and October every year, the plaza outside St. Lin Church is packed with tourists, wanting to experience and see the traditional cheese market.
Golden, shiny cheese, in both round and octagon shape, are placed in line on the plaza. These cheese are produced in the cheese factory from all over the Netherlands, they have been transported to Alkmaar from the river, prepared to be tasted and valued.
At ten, the valuation/trade begins. The valuer tastes a sample dug out from a small knife, and then labels each cheese. They are followed by people dressed in white, who will then carry the cheese into the Waag. These cheese passes all the examination only until all the procedures are finished, then are able to be delivered else where for sale.
Delivery staffs are dressed in different colours, representing different companies. They are all very agile and full of stamina. You would always be able to see them carrying cheese to and fro the market.
After visiting the market, it would be a good idea to tour the alley alongside the river. You will be able to find many shops that sell souvenirs and cheese, and even hand-made shoes which they make on the spot! Souvenirs here are usually cheaper, it would be worth your while comparing. It is always a good idea to try different flavoured cheese, and bring them home to share with relatives in Taiwan. TITA recommends Smoke Cheese, it tastes fabulous, and is especially divine when you complement it with red wine.參考資料： myself
