Description

Edam is one of the most popular exports from Amsterdam. There is a distinctive wheel-like shape in the cheese and a red rind fire-engine. The popular cheese market and cheese-weighing hall are in the heart of town. In the 12th century, the town of Edam was settled and is renowned for its cheese-making industry. During the summer months, the market runs regularly, with locals getting into the mood with traditional costumes.
