Noordermarkt

Thursday, February 13, 2014

One of my favorite parts of Amsterdam was wandering through Noordermarkt on Saturday morning. Naturally I fell in love with the abundance of fresh organic vegetables and charming antiques, but my favorite part was undoubtedly the immense variety of cheeses. I'm a cheese-aholic as it is, (an unfortunate circumstance for someone as lactose intolerant as I am...) but let me just say that Dutch cheese is magical. Don't even get me started on how savory that rich Gouda was. 

After the market, Kelly and I stopped by the Cheese Museum - which pretty much takes the cake for the best museum ever. The Cheese Museum offers unlimited samples of every kind of cheese they sell, which basically meant that I had to take a million Lactaid pills and didn't have to pay for lunch that day. Jackpot.

Visiting local markets is always on the top of my list for whatever city I visit, and Noordermarkt is no exception. 

What are some of your favorite markets abroad?
