De Kaaskamer van Amsterdam

De Kaaskamer van Amsterdam

It is not difficult to find good cheese in The Netherlands. For a country that is renowned for its wonderful cheeses –such as Edam and Gouda, it comes as no surprise that even the selection of cheese available at your local grocery store is great. You really can’t go too far wrong! There are many good cheese shops all around Amsterdam, however, one particular cheese shop stands out above the rest. Nestled in the “9 straatjes” shopping district in central Amsterdam you will find De Kaaskamer van Amsterdam  (“The Cheese Chamber of Amsterdam” in Dutch) — a favoured cheese shop among locals and tourists alike.

De Kaaskamer Cheese Shop

The cheese here is not just good, it is incredible – and there is plenty to choose from. Every pocket of space in the shop is occupied by delicious cheeses and accompaniments. All of the cheese is sourced from local farmers and producers that truly know their trade well and there are a huge selection of varieties and flavours available. They really cater to every taste and, like every good cheese shop ought to, you are able to sample the different cheeses to help you decide. The staff are also very helpful and experienced.

De Kaaskamer Cheeses

As well as cheese, De Kaaskamer also sells everything that goes well with cheese: cured meats, marinated olives, homemade salads, home roasted nuts, flat breads and of course wine. You can easily fill a picnic hamper here and head to your nearest park to enjoy.

De Kaaskamer Cheese and Wines

It is also worth noting that you can order De Kaaskamer cheeses online through their website (they ship internationally to over 25 different countries) so you can easily try more of their range after your visit.

Marqt

The concept behind Marqt (not a supermarket but a 'fresh market') is fresh food, mostly organic, coming from local farms in the neighbourhood of Amsterdam and of very high ...
