Gouda is not just the cheese. It’s a fairy-tale town in the Netherlands not far from Utrecht, and if you go on a Saturday, you might just walk right in to their famous market. The cheese (and not just Gouda cheese) makes up a substantial part of it, but there are also stalls overflowing with fruit in the summertime and irresistible Dutch souvenirs. Surrounding the market is Gouda’s historical town square and many beautiful side streets waiting to be discovered, not to mention a canal or two. If you are looking for some more of that magical Dutch charm, this is another place to visit.
