    Mill the Huisman: Zaanse Mustard

    by Mique Written Feb 8, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The mill produces the original Zaanse Mustard which you can buy in a tiny little shop in the mill. Well, actually the shop is so tiny that you'll be outside the mill and just tell them which mustard you want and how many jars....

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Here they have all kinds of cheeses. In small that is. Of course the ´normal´ Gouda cheese in a nice small round form. But also cheese with herbs or smoky cheese.. We had a good time tasting it all and then deciding which ones we wanted..

    Apart from cheese they do sell sandwiches )with cheese of course), old ducth sweets and some other niceties..

    They also ship cheese all over the world.

    What to buy: uuhhh.. let me think.. Cheese maybe?

    klompenmakerij De Zaanse Schans: buy wooden shoes

    by tompt Written Mar 20, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    What to buy: If you want to buy wooden shoes for yourself it may be usefull to know what size you need. In wooden shoes you wear thick wool socks, and then you need one cm space behind your heel. This is to prevent friction, and blisters as a result of that.

    You can buy wooden shoes at the clogmaker, Kraaienest 4

    What to pay: It is a tourist attraction therefor it is more expensive than in regular stores. Wooden shoes can also be bought in shops that specialise in gardening all over the country.

    Catharina Hoeve: taste before buying

    by tompt Written Mar 20, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The cheese farm the Catharina Hoeve is where you can see how cheese is made, but also buy some great varieties of cheese. All cheeses they sell you can taste first.
    So do have a taste and than choose which one to buy. In this case it is a good idea to buy here, because every cheesemaker has its own flavors.

    Catharina Hoeve: CHEESE

    by globetrott Written Apr 11, 2015

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Catharina Hoeve is the name of one of the cheese-shops in the museum-village of Zaanse Schan. You will be able and welcome to step inside and take a look around, there is a bit of a museum and at certain times there might be some explanations given as well, but mainly it is a shop.

    What to buy: They have cheese and mustard and some other specialities that might make some great souvenirs.

    What to pay: Most of the cheese that I found there was more expensive than the Edamer-cheese would be in sold in Austria, BUT of course you never know anything about the quality of the cheese.

    Cheese Farm De Catherinahoeve: Dutch cheese

    by Yijie Updated Jun 19, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The first thing that greets you is the shelves of cheese when you enter the farm. You can also see the cheese making equipment behind these shelves. Though I don't take cheese in Paris, I was game enough to try the cheese here. All the cheese should be available for tasting, if not, you can request from the shop assistant. They turned out to be quite nice.

    What to buy: Their most popular Herbs & Garlic cheese is indeed the best that I tried from the available selection.

    What to pay: It costs around 6€ each.
