Great turn out at Treacle today for our last market of 2012. Not sure what the collective name is for market traders but what an amazing gathering of great folk with fabulous products, all set in the wonderful market town of Macclesfield. Furthermore what a fabby following of loyal supporters Treacle has each and every month without fail, rain or shine….. Thank you! Huge thanks also, to market creator and manager Jane Munroe and foodie manager Debbie Quinn for inviting us back each month.
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!
