Mrs.Fredlee naar Alkmaar

Kaas! Cheese!

All the years I have lived in Holland this was the first time I had been to the Cheese Market in Alkmaar!
I felt like a real tourist but it was fun to watch the colourful Cheese carriers in their traditional costumes, scuttling around with their huge cheeses on wooden floats, weighing the cheeses on huge scales and the traders bartering endlessly together. The city puts on a good show! Every friday morning at ten o’clock!In Alkmaar-6
