Woerden is an authentic Farmers Market Town. Traditionally, farmer families have always brought their fresh produce to the city. This tradition is still very much alive in the historic center of this Farmers Market Town. Because the city is surrounded by rural countryside, you will find a large variety of fresh regional and local produce at the intimate Farmers Market. Woerden is thé main Farmers Market Town of the Green Heart of Holland. Discover the country life in the city and in the countryside. Visit the Farmers Cheese Market, the modern Kaaspakhuis (cheese warehouse) and the annual Koeiemart (Cow's Market). Throughout the year, there is also a regional market at Kerkplein. Don't forget to visit one of the many restaurants in the city, which use regional and local produce in their cooking. We are happy to give you tips to plan the ultimate outing during which you can experience the Farmers Market Town yourself!
