The Cheese Testers • Last Dutch Cheese Market • Woerden • The NETHERLANDS

 

Each year in Woerden, local farmers gather together. The meet up in a small farm house to taste cheese. 100 blocks of Gouda in different shapes and sizes. It's more than just a contest about cheese, however. It is about honoring a hard day's work. It is about encouraging your neighbor. It is about bringing together the community. Once, farmers gathered together all across the Netherlands. Now, the market in Woerden is the very last traditional market left.
