We went to the monthly Treacle Market this morning (Sunday). Macclesfield used to be called "Treacle Town" - there are various explanations as to why (some of them rather rude!) but no-one seems to know for certain. However, the market is called the Treacle Market, and is very popular.
There were lots of different stalls - foodie ones.....
And crafty ones.....
And all sorts of different things for sale. I was able to buy some lovely pies and some Greek bulgar wheat salad for our meal tonight, plus some delicious-looking ciabatta bread.
Once the church bells had stopped ringing (the market place is right outside the Parish Church), there was a Jazz band to keep us in a spending mood.
Despite the cold wind - the Market Place being the highest point of Macclesfield, I thoroughly enjoyed myself. The food especially was very tempting, but Mr.G said he hadn't gone there to buy food, so I was unable to indulge myself. Probably a good thing!
Haven't posted recently, as not been feeling too well, but hopefully, now Spring is here, I can get out a bit more and find interesting things to blog about!
