Cheese, wooden shoes and tulips are the things you're supposed to buy in Dutch markets – cheese being my personal favourite. And Gouda being the cheese for me.

They've been trading Gouda et al, in the Goudse kaasmarkt for around 300 years, the prime selling time being Thursday mornings in the summer. Here the cheese is weighed, tasted, priced purchased and exhibited. The cheese making process and other traditionally Dutch pastimes happen alongside the main market event. This is also where to come to learn about the wooden shoe making.
