During the summer months of July and August, an extra cheese market takes place every Tuesday evening on the Waagplein in Alkmaar. The Tuesday evening cheese market starts at 19:00 and lasts until 21:00.
The course of the cheese market on Tuesday evening is the same as on Friday morning.

Parking in general
We advise against entering the city centre by car on Friday morning. It is best to park in one of the car parks or car parks around the centre, such as the P+R sites Bergermeer and Oudorp from where you can take the bus to the centre.
