A record number of 169 000 visitors came to Alkmaar’s Cheese Market in 2017! An average of approximately 6 000 people visited each Friday morning Cheese Market. That’s a lot of people.
Building on the success of the Friday market, an evening Cheese Market was also introduced in 2017. The evening market was held on eight Tuesdays throughout the Cheese Market season (April - Sept). The evening Cheese Markets were so successful that it has been decided to continue with the Tuesday market for 2018. Dates haven’t been released yet for next year’s Tuesday Evening Cheese Markets, so watch this space for more information!
