Kaasmarkt

Having obtained the right to the public scale (Kaaswaag) and the cheese market, Edam began to develop the cheese trade for which it is famous. This ended with the introduction of industrial production in 1922, although traditional methods have been reintroduced in recent years. The Kaasmarkt (cheese market) is home to the public scale, decorated with painted panels, where the cheese was once weighed.
