Had a wonderful, sunny, cold, blustery day Treacling at Macclesfield this weekend…. ok I admit we were slightly snugger in the old Butter Market with the sun streaming in and church bells ringing. Great atmosphere as always, friendly faces and lots of new things to see. Treated ourselves to some great finds from stalls and great boutique shops. Mightily impressed by the teenagers from All Hallows Catholic College who’d baked cakes, made candles, chillie oils, chutneys, fabulous nesting boxes and scrummy dog biscuits which our dog Coco Merrtyale heartily endorses! Big thank you to the lovely ladies@ Smashing Times who gave us some wonderful scalloped petit fours tins to make retablos from…..so thoughtful! We love Treacle!
Castlefield Artisan MarketPosted: November 7, 2012 Filed under: artisan market, Castlefield Artisan Market, Manchester Market | Tags: Castlefield Artisan Market Leave a comment
Great day selling at Castlefield Artisan market, Manchester on Sunday (first Sunday each month 10 – 3.30). The sun shone brilliantly for us all day. Superb stalls including award winning food produce, crafts, vintage, cafe and live and dancing thanks to the Cotton Town Hot Club. The location is perfect with canal side bars and restaurants, all in all a way to spend a sunny Sunday morning.
This was the last market there this year, they will resume on the first Sunday in February.

Treacle Market and Barnaby Festival 2012, MacclesfieldPosted: June 26, 2012 Filed under: Art, Art Market, artisan market, Barnaby Festival, Treacle Macclesfield, Treacle Market | Tags: Barnaby Festival, Macclesfield, Treacle Market Leave a comment
We had a superb time on our stall at Treacle Market this Sunday as always, but this Sunday was particularly special as it was also the 4th day of the Barnaby Festival, so lots of events, performers, and exhibitions to see. The sun came out, the rain stayed away and Chestergate was festooned in the most wonderful gigantic bunting.
The street performers were great, including a contortionist and a crazy man with a suitcase (speaker) who was herding chickens into shops, ducking from overhead helicopters and running from gunfire amongst other things. We saw Teresa Wilson’s wonderful “The Ecchoing Green” sculpture installation in the beautiful King Edward Chapel, which was dark and filled with trees and the sound of crows cawing. Very eerie but equally beautiful, the girls loved it!

Bonker*s Clutterbucks had a wonderful day at the Castlefield’s Diamond Jubilee Artisan Market on Sunday. Folk turned out in force despite terrible British weather to support the carnival and artisan market and to stock up on the fabulous produce and handmade goods. The arches were festooned in red, white and blue bunting and afternoon tea was served on vintage crockery with entertainment provided by the fabulous Cotton Club dancers. Deck chairs seemed to be the order of the day and us girls even made it to “Castle Sands” ( a canal side beach) for a spot of sand castle building.
Treacle Market – MacclesfieldPosted: May 28, 2012 Filed under: artisan market, Beautiful objects, Treacle Macclesfield, Treacle Market, Uncategorized | Tags: Treacle Macclesfield, Treacle Market Leave a comment
Superb day at Treacle market, Macclesfield on Sunday (every last Sunday of the month). Glorious sunshine all day and the numbers who turned out to shop were tremendous as always. Lots of great stalls with top quality food, beverages, vintage and handmade products and quirky goods. The owl man was there with his enormous eagle owl and there was morris dancing. We were very impresses by a group of enterprising youngsters (aged approx 9) who’d made macrame bracelets in red white and blue and were giving 25% of their proceeds to charity. We got to meet our lovely fb friend Hilary Cottier and her infamous wire fox terrier Tabitha who arrived in her carriage!
