  • We went here with a tour group so and we had a cheese tasting as part of the visit. I'm sure they do this for single travelers also. The cheeses were good.  more »

  • Very nice and polite community. We visited market on Wednesday at 10:00 to 12:00, but you need to check a which day is the market open, it is available only 4 times a month. Almost all markets provide you possibility to taste different types of Edam cheese before buying the right one for you. We encountered about 25 different types and flavours. Everyone speaks English and they are happy to tell you specifics about​ factoring the cheese.
  • Nice for tourist. Edam is a beautiful city to visit. A must see!
  • We visited 5 years ago and we a little disappointed. Visited again in 2017 and the transformation has been fantastic. This is a market you must not miss if you're in the area. A great historical display and reenactment, as well as great cheeses, stalls and atmosphere. The prices at the stalls were cheaper than from the cheese factory's that we'd visited, and we even cheaper than many of the shops in the area. A great time was had here by ourselves and our kids.
  • What a show, how things used to be done in this old town.... Or is it? May actually be how they still perform the local cheese trade. We'll worth a visit.
  • Loved everything about it. If you happen to be in Amsterdam during that period, you can't miss the Edam cheese festival
