Cheese carriers carry the cheeses on barrows. On the cheese barrows they can carry up to 160 kilos of cheese!
The cheese is weighed at the Waaggebouw.
Traders and farmers negotiate the prices of the cheese.
'Throwers' throw the cheese on wagons so they can be transported.
The cheese girls inform the visitors about the cheese and the ins and outs of the Cheese Market.
In the summer holiday there is a 'Children's Cheese Market', a special tour for children between the ages of 6 and 12. A guide tells the children about everything that can be seen here. At the end, they are allowed to go on the cheese scale and are given a prestigious weighing certificate.
This year, the Children's Cheese Market takes place every Friday between at 10:30 AM and at 11:00 AM on the following dates:
