    I am not aware that the Cheese Market would give way to Good Friday, especially since there is no church in the immediate surrounding of where the market happens.

    The cheese markets in Alkmaar are from earliest April to beginning September, each Friday from 10-12.30 hrs.

    BE ON TIME, that is to say: BE EARLY! Or you won't see a thing.

    Alkmaar has a lot to offer besides the cheese market. I have some recommendations for restaurants and things to do on my Alkmaar page.

    Enjoy!

    Some more tips about Alkmaar here: Alkmaar - Alkmaar, Netherlands

    We got a walking tour through the city for just a few euros at the VVV (tourist office) at the Waag next to the cheesemarket, which was really nice to walk.

    Cheers,
    Dennis
